I decided to take my 6-year-old son to learn more about some history that he knew a little about, and also I was interested too. I was worried he would be bored and get ansy. However, there was a video at the beginning that explained everything in the museum, which was good for him, and while it is a museum... More

This museum is wonderfully curated, and you can see so much of the Concord heritage! Love the rooms where you are taken back in time. Traveled here with children and they had a great area for them, too. Worth the visit.

Very interesting museum covering the history of Concord. Many of the exhibits cater to educational outreach for school groups. It must be great to have such a resource to bring history to life and make it fun for kids.

A nice way to experience the essence of Concord, and its history. Its beginning, its relevance during revolutionary times, its American intellectual importance, and it's future. Went on Christmas eve... the museum had partnered with area schools to promote children's literature which I'm sure boosts attendance, but distracted from what the museum intends to show. Certainly worth a visit.

For many years Concord Museum has hosted a Family Trees exhibit. This year more than 35 children's books were represented with a decorated "Christmas" tree. These trees are placed throughout the Museum exhibits. The books range from board books to young adult books. Fiction and non-fiction are included. This year "Make Way For Ducklings" (published iin 1941) was represented. Classics... More

I had no idea what to expect when I decided to stop in and was pleasantly surprised and impressed. Aside from being able to see Paul Revere's lantern from the North Church, the museum has tons of interesting historical artifacts from when the Native Americans inhabited the surrounding area up until present day. There was so much to see and... More

A small well laid out museum giving a glimpse of life from the time of Native Americans, puritan settlements, revolutionary Minute men of the shot heard around the world, philosophical authors from the area and Concord town history. Start here when visiting Walden Pond (has a few actual items from Thoreau's cabin), literary author's home (Emerson, Alcott), the North Bridge... More
