Housed in a 2 story building resembling the historical homes of the area, the Concord Museum focuses primarily on 2 areas: the Revolutionary War, and the history of Concord. On the day we visited, a Free Fun Friday, costumed interpreters added greatly to what we learned from the exhibits, and more than 2 hours flew by. Activities for children held... More

The best part of the museum for me was seeing Emerson's study. So many books...such a beautiful site! I would definitely go back.

This museum showcased Concord's past. It had some interesting displays, but on the whole, we weren't that impressed with the artifacts and displays. We went through the museum in about 30 minutes.

I just can't say enough how much I love Concord, MA. I fell in love with this beautiful, historical little town the second I stepped off of the train. The people of the town are as warm as its history and architecture. When I travel to new places, I always seek out the visitors center or historical museum to better... More

We didn't have a lot of time so we decided to visit the museum. It gave us a great view into the works and world of Emerson and Thoreau. A must see if you are in the area.

Just go when you're in town. There couldn't be a better place to experience and see so many wonderful artifacts and exhibits about Colonial and 19th C. life in New England. Add to that the rich history of Concord, and it becomes an experience you'll think about and remember long after. Pure Americana. Worth far more than the price of... More

Wonderful museum! We loved seeing Emerson's studio, Thoreau's desk, and of course the lanterns that hung in Old North Church! This museum is a must see in Concord! You will not be disappointed!

Small museum, clean, and organized. The highlight for me was seeing Paul Revere's lantern, I guess it made an impact on me when I learned about it in school. My 11 year old daughter enjoyed all the period rooms. It was also neat to see the sculptures of Abigail May Alcott's student, Daniel French, who sculpted the Minute Man statue... More

When in concord don't miss this small but interesting museum. In about one and a half hours you'll be rewarded with a sense of life in early America. A bit expensive but worth the visit.
