INSPIRING!

The whole experience makes you feel you were really there. The park rangers knew their history, and the visitor center offered the background you need for the site. INSPIRING!!!

Beautiful park to walk through whilst absorbing the history of the area. I can imagine how lovely it will be in a few weeks when autumn is weaving it's magic with the trees.

Every stop along this trail is fascinating, but it is a really long walk to do the entire trail. I was too tired to do the whole thing on a hot day, but I'll definitely go back soon to finish it!

Although I am a native e of Massachusetts I had never visited the park while growing up. What a treat to discover this important look back in history! Plan your visit because it is a very long trail and while scenic, perhaps you don't want to walk 10miles! The multimedia presentation at the visitor center is worthwhile, and see if... More

Despite growing up in Massachusetts, I never made it here until October of '14. What a wonderful place. You see the lay of the land, much as those minutemen who fought and died here. You can wander the ample fields, or follow the footpath from the old North Bridge to the Visitor Center. A must stop for every American who... More

For an entertaining and informative introduction to the start of the American Revolution, the Minuteman Visitors' Center offers a multimedia video, in addition to many more concentrated snapshots of both well known and lesser known participants on boards in the lobby. Free parking allows one to walk the unpaved Battle Road to Concord's Wayside Tavern without parking meter worries, and... More

We had about an hour and a half available one morning on a recent trip to Boston, and we were staying close to Concord, so we decided to visit Minute Man National Historical Park. The trails are lovely and well-maintained, but we didn't have much time and didn't spend much time on them, which was a pity. Most of our... More

Really interesting, a must for history buffs & nature lovers, as well, as this is a lovely place for a walk. If you're n the area, stop by to either have your picnic lunch, or to check in at the historical/ visitors center. Do NOT miss going to the Old North Bridge. Check out the details on how the USA...

Really enjoyed the park. Must see if the visitor center as the video presentation really clarifies any confusion about just how these events took shape - the battle trail and the retreat were of particular interest to me. Later went to sites in the park such as Revere's capture and Hartwell Tavern. Wish I had more time, but could only... More

The Park was OK but none of the "stations" were open because we came before the Spring season opened...I think budget cuts have closed certain facilities.
