This museum certainly provides the historical context to understand and enjoy Concord. The displays were well done, especially the room displays.

Recently we went to see the Book Themed Christmas Tree Display. Our 6yo and 3yo loved it. On admission we received a sheet for them to spot and mark off an object from selected trees, which kept their interest well. The staff were all so helpful and friendly, even helping us find one that we had missed! The trees were... More

This is where Henry D. Thoreau's original deck and bed are and a little history of the town and the literary greats that lived here. Even though this museum is awesome. Around the holidays they seem to dress it up with Christmas trees decorated by children. I was little disappointed that they put one in the Thoreau installation. That's sacred... More

Soooo much history beautifully displayed! First off, Concord is adorable. Henry James called it "the biggest little place in America." It has a pretty town square and a plethora of things to see, the museum being one of the must sees. It's filled with wonderful artifacts from the area - among the most moving for us was one of The...

An easy to walk through museum. Self guided walks with museum people well placed to answer any questions. There is an ever changing exhibit on the top floor.

Allow some time for this museum. It gives the historical background of the area, and also upstairs they have more recent additions including quilts and childrens artwork which were an interesting addition. Parking can be tricky. This is also right across the street from the Emerson Museum, which has limited hours. The three for one museum ticket with this venue,... More

I had been in Concord a few months ago and had skipped this museum. This trip I visited the museum and I very pleased I stopped. The staff is super friendly (not in an annoying way!) We saw how a casket was made, an exhibit on children's literature and artifacts on sleep (beds, chamber pots etc) during the early years... More

The Concord Museum is a jewel box of a museum with a collection of local artifacts that can't be beat! The museum is easy to visit and contains mostly items of local interest, of revolutionary war things, of its authors, the women's movement, and of the industrial revolution. The museum and its artifacts are in exceptional condition. Kudos to its... More

For a small fee you get a short look at the history of Concord, especially their part in the American Revolution and their local authors. The staff is very friendly. There is an elevator for those who have trouble with stairs.
