A friend told me to go. What a spectacular experience. The people were great. I got a student discount, as did my kids and my mom got a senior discount and my sister got military, I think the whole tour cost about $20. You also have to tour the church next door. What a find in boston.

If you're visiting Boston, I highly recommend taking a tour of this church as it is gorgeous. They are currently working on it as I write this review, but once it is finished in 2018, it is a must see! The ceilings are beautiful and it houses one of the largest pipe organs in the world!

Take the free tour for the architecture and the stained glass (and the beautiful organ). They'll also give you a bit of history on the religion, but not in an invasive way. Very nice tour guide.
