Lots to see

This is an interesting area with the emphasis on history. Don't miss the video in the Visitors' Center as it will provide context for the surrounding areas.

Not being one to hike (especially in the summer heat) we drove and stopped at most of the Minuteman park's sites. The short videos in both the North visitor center and the one in Lincoln (near Concord) are great and should definitely be done first before visiting any of the other sites. There's no A/C in the Lincoln visitor center... More

Plan to spend at least one full day. You can start at the beginning, the first shot of the revolution, and work your way through to the North Bridge in Concord. There are clear pathways for those who choose to walk the entire park, or you can visit a site or two then move your car to another lot to... More

It was amazing to be on on the same ground where the British and the colonists fought. There is a deep sense of appreciation for their strength and commitment to fight for our freedom. Soak in the atmosphere and the surroundings, and try to imagine what it was like. Very powerful.

There is a lot to see and do at the Minuteman National Historical Park. I recommend starting at the Museum where you can see multiple displays, visit with the Rangers, and watch a little multi-media presentation about the battles at Lexington and Concorde and Paul Revere's ride. From there you can head west along Battle Road to Hartwell's Tavern. We... More

This free visitors' center doesn't have a lot to look at but it has a great movie/multimedia presentation which explains what happened in the area just prior to the Revolutionary War. Well worth a visit!

The Battle Road Trail is a great walk through history. The multimedia presentation at the Lexington/Lincoln Visitor Center is inside a small theater on a stage set and is well-done. Recommend viewing it prior to heading out on the trail, it runs every half hour, last one at 4:30 pm. The exhibits just outside the theater are also great. Restrooms... More

Traveling the Battle Trail is something everyone needs to do. This is the forgotten part of the story of April 19, 1775. The continual harassment of the British set us on the road to revolution. There is lots of foot and bike traffic on the path, but it has an easy grade. See the movie at the visitor center! The... More

We visited the park for the first time on August 1st, 2015 for the Battle Road Tail Walk Tour. The Ranger was very informative. It was a pleasant long walk. My nine year old never mentioned to be bored during the tour. It was very nice of one of the Rangers to arrange for my elder sister to be picked... More

When my children were young, this was a great place to stroll. Now I find it peacefull to saunter and have a snack.
