Once we found the North Bridge and Visitor Center, it was great walking amongst history where the first shots of the revolution were fired. The problem was finding this part of the park. GPS directions have you landing somewhere in a parking lot in the middle of the park, and there are NOT very good signs saying, " North Bridge"... More

My husband and I took a daytrip to this park to see where the "shot heard around the world" took place and began the American Revolution. Start at the Minute Man Visitor Center where you can read about the people involved in the events that took place on April 19th, 1775 and watch a captive, 20-minute presentation in the theater....

Excellent film that gave a great overview of the beginning of the war and really put it all into perspective. Wish I saw this visitor center first before seeing everything else. Nice visitors center, probably my favorite from the 3 or 4 we saw today.

You'll need a day to walk / drive to see the history of this place. The place where the shot was heard around the world! Capture place of Paul Revere. Houses of famous writers... This is well maintained park near a quaint town.

We watched the multimedia presentation ("The Road to Revolution") and it was fantastic, easy to understand and very informative. Definitely watch before going to the North Bridge or other places within the park. One very weird thing...there are no trash cans. So don't think you will be able to toss your lunch trash at the visitors' center!

We visited in hot July but still walked a portion of the Battle Road Trail. The whole park is fabulous. Having the markers along the trail helped keep the interest of each site. Both visitor centers are also full of information. Hartwell Tavern is awesome, with period actors to discuss both the inn and the role of the minute man.... More

Start your visit with the 25 minute film at the Minuteman Visitor Center - very well done and good start to your tour of the area. Nice trails and things to see. Traffic can be bad.

Very interesting. History under your feet. Enjoyed even in 90 degree heat. Only down side to this landmark is the signage. Hard to find.

Definitely watch the multi-media presentation! They play it every half hour, and it is a great intro to the events that unfolded in Concord, plus it's very well done. The visitors center has a number of exhibits that also explain things, both from a colonial and British point of view. There is plenty of parking, but you do have to... More
