There are several national parks near Concord, but this one is between Lexington and Concord. As other reviewers have said, it is a 5 minute walk from the parking lot to the main building so just keep walking through the woods. The program is very pleasant and entertaining and the grounds are lovely.

Make sure you do the multi media show at visitor center--a little hokey at times but overall well done and highly educational/entertaining. Also engage the rangers, they are all nice and enthusiastic. Bring insect repellent for the woods!

We stopped on the way from Lexington to Concord at the National Park's site. It is a grass and tree covered area. After parking in the parking lot, you hike a path for about 5 minutes to get to the Park's visitor center. They have a 20 minute film that covers the history. A few displays and a gift shop.... More

Minute Man National Historical Park is a great experience, especially for older children and teenagers. Do not miss the multi-media presentation at the Visitor Center!

This NHP is actually composed of many linked sites marking the events of Paul Revere's ride, the battles of Lexington/Concord and the British retreat back to Boston. Can be made into a full day (or more) if you want to read all about the history of the events leading to the conflict. Definitely go to the visitor's center for the... More

We lucked out and got beautiful weather today which I think made this visit even better. The living history actors were so friendly and full of information. So many sites to see that we ran out of time. I recommend wearing good walking shoes and just walking the whole trail. Or just bring bikes, there were cyclists everywhere and the... More

Our family enjoyed our visit to the MInute Man park. We wish we had more time to explore even more of it. We watched the movie at the Visitor Center (it was excellent!! We were all interested - even my 13 year old son who isn't interested much in history!!) and then drove to the North Bridge where the shots... More

It is a pretty park and great for picnics or just hanging out. You can see the famous bridge and the statue that represents our militia.

You might not spend too long here but it's worth an hour or two. Good informative film in the visitors centre will "orientate" you and help you understand more than just the history of he revolution. Follow the visit here with one to Lexington (Munroe Tavern recommended if you are only going to visit one historic sight) and then to... More

This is where American was born! All the history books from kindergarden through graduate school in a college of university can't substitute for a visit to see the Minute Man sites in Concord.
