If you are connected with the worlds of history and literature, you will love this site. There a so many memorable exhibits connected to the American Revolution, to the transcendentalists and to other varied aspects of history and literature. I especially liked seeing the exhibit with Thoreau's belongings which even included some of the furnishings from his house at Walden.

This is a beautifully designed and well-operated museum. The exhibits are interesting and the space is filled with exhibits both about the historic local community as well as the evolving United States and its struggles. Well worth a visit!

I heard the hype, but wasn't impressed. Pretty expensive for what you see. The intro movie was good but artifacts and displays were not that impressive. Glad i visited but will not return

This museum is very nice and has a very informative film to begin your visit. There are important artifacts on display...one of the lanterns from the famous "one if by land" fame. There is the original desk of Henry David Thoreau's days at Walden Pond.

Be sure to watch the introductory film (10 mins) prior to visiting the exhibits on the City of Concord. This city has a rich history and the film helps set the stage. Though reviews we had read recommended an hour for the museum we ended up spending more than that. The exhibits are well laid out and there docents throughout... More

Although it's not that large, this museum and its docents, along with some well-prepared flyers throughout give you a strong sense of the history of this area. There's a wide variety, from rooms set up to replicate life in those days, displays of the work of sculptors, metalwork artists and sewing/handiwork displays. Very enjoyable.

When we visited the museum, we were lucky enough to go on a day when entry was free, but it is worth paying the $10 dollar admission price. The museum charts life in Concord from the earliest native Americans, through the coming of the Puritans, the battle of April 19th 1775 and notable persons of the town, including authors such...

This is a gem of a museum giving not only the history of this Revolutionary town but also of its role in the intellectual development of the US. At Christmas there is a display of trees with children's book themes. Not to be missed in any season.
