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.

We enjoyed the visiting collection of baseball memorabilia, as well as the chronologically arranged history of the Concord area. This presents a readily understandable story of the settlement and evolution of this town seeped in our Nation's history, as well as the contributions many residents have made to our intellectual growth, such as Nataniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Louisa...

Here you can learn about the locals, the Puritans, see Emerson's library, Thoreau's writing desk etc. We bought our ticket here when we bought one for the Emerson house, a package deal.

This was a great tour. It was both informational and educational. It chronicles the history of Concord from early colonial to the present. The video presented is a must see before starting the museum self guided tour because it enhanced the experience when walking through the museum. The staff are very nice and helpful. Lastly, don't forget to go to... More
