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

An overall nice look at the history of Concord, emphasizing that a literary revolution started there in addition to the one everyone comes for.

This place houses some amazing history. There are also additional shows in the upstairs gallery, right now it is the Art of Baseball. One of the best gift shops in the area.

Very well organised and informative. The rooms are all in chronological order, so you can get a real feel for the development of concern and all the influences that underpinned each stage.

This is a little gem of a museum near downtown Concord. The exhibits are nicely done and it's always something good to do when you have out of town guests.

This is no ordinary history museum! For a first class introduction to the historic town on Concord, the world-changing things that happened there, and the fascinating people who called Concord "home" this is a "must see" place. Also, you can purchase tickets to the Museum, the Manse (home to Emerson's, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and others of note across the years), and... More

This is a smaller museum with an interesting collection but it's definitely worth the stop if only to peek at Paul Revere's lantern and the exhibit about Thoreau's cabin. This is a nice way to brush up on your history before touring the other sites in this town.

This is a small museum located within reasonable walking distance from the town center. Many interesting displays but not much up-to-date material. No easy way to see only part of the museum. Great gift shop.

Numerous original items dating back to the 1700s with history data on lower level. Upstairs baseball history and original items. Very good presentations by employees and movies.
