The Concord Museum offers an audio video and an informative exhibition about the history of the Pioneers fight to free themselves from British rule, and later the many intellectuals and writers who came to stay in the Concord area. I bought a combi ticket that included the Louisa Alcott house which is a ten minute walk away.

Start with the Concord Museum before going to other sites in the area to give historical perspective of the numerous events that transpired here. The permanent collections and ever-changing exhibits are wonderfully presented in a beautiful facility. Staff members are very welcoming and knowledgeable. There is a lovely gift shop here, too.

I'll be honest, I did not have high expectations for this Museum. As I went in and saw the exhibit layout, they did a fantastic job using their artifacts, stories, and the existing building. Its not only a good showing of local history but a great illustration of bigger historical concepts. You don't have to be from Concord to appreciate... More

Visited with my niece. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount, and quality of exhibits. It's a good value for the money, and provides a good history of the importance that Concord played during the revolutionary war. They also have Emerson's study.

What a lovely little museum. If you plan to be in the Concord area, this is worth the trip. They have changing exhibits as well as permanent collections. Plan on spending at least an hour at the museum. Also, watch the film, if one is being offered. The history is fascinating.

A must see for those who are in the Lexington/Concord area to experience the American Revolution. It is filled with exciting artifacts, such as the lantern that hung in the old North Church in Boston.

An interesting small museum giving an insight into Paul Revere's ride from Boston to Lexington. Worth a visit.

Want to know the documented side of Concord, start here. There is a plethora of information to be had. It's like stepping back into time for a brief while, let the imagination soar and you'll find the diamonds in the rough, the secrets of the town's magic! Everyone was enormously helpful, a gem it was.

Sometimes, less is more. This museum has some fascinating exhibits, such as the lantern used by Paul Revere to warn of the coming British. Enjoyed the displays.
