We loved the signs all around to tell you the path of where the militia went and where Paul Revere was arrested. It felt like we were back in that time and it was beautifully kept. The plaques around are also wonderful as well. Great to honor those men and that time.

We visited the park on August 01, 2015 for the Battle Road Trail Walk. It was a very long walk yet very informative. My nine year old boy didn't complain once nor mentioned to be bored in the 3.5 hours walking tour. In our group my sister and sister in-law couldn't finish the walking tour, so it was very nice...

What a very well preserved history lesson. The houses are so well taken care of, wish more were open for diaplay. The trail is beautiful and very well taken care of. Would have been great to walk to whole trail but with no way back to truck was unable to do...maybe next time I will bring my bike.

It was worth the trip - video at main Visitor Center is a most see. Also go to North Bridge - it's amazing to see it and realize how close everyone was - great to walk in our forefather's foot steps.

Meeting the colonial actors and actress... seeing a musket fired (Lexington, MA). Walking over the bridge and seeing the first battle field where the colonials decided to defend themselves. (Lexington, MA has a video(Deaf and Hearing Impaired friendly) that explains the battle and the 16 hour day 700 British soldiers against 70 militia later changing to 400 militia later changing...

All events are free. Each site had a costumed reenact or period dressed park ranger to tell the history and significance of the site. There was even a minute men/ musket demonstration at the tavern. Very educational and exciting for all ages. The parking by each site helped cut down the amount of walking and was easy to access.

A historical national park with beautiful scenery and very educational information. The 25 minute video has outstanding special effects and is very informative. The walking paths are scenic and a good, leisurely exercise. The gift shop has unique souvenirs and the park is a great place to have a picnic and relax in the sun.

I have been to a lot of historical sites and visitor centers. Most visitor centers offer a comprehensive video at the visitor center explaining the events that unfolded there. The Minute Man National Historical Park did something different and it really kept the attention of my children, one is a teenager. Not just a video, but a sight and sound... More

First, the location is simply beautiful. The history is rich and the placards should not be missed. Two revolutions occurred in Concord: The beginning of the American Revolution and the Transcendalist Revolution. There is a lot to be said about Freedom and why we should still watch out for our fellow men and women to ensure they also have equal... More
