I had no idea what to expect when I decided to stop in and was pleasantly surprised and impressed. Aside from being able to see Paul Revere's lantern from the North Church, the museum has tons of interesting historical artifacts from when the Native Americans inhabited the surrounding area up until present day. There was so much to see and... More

A small well laid out museum giving a glimpse of life from the time of Native Americans, puritan settlements, revolutionary Minute men of the shot heard around the world, philosophical authors from the area and Concord town history.

Wait for the film. Great display of antiques , toys and doll houses. You are able to walk through the museum at your own pace. They realize small children might be bored and I noticed coloring stations for small tots to give them something to interest them while Mom & Dad might be reading a display item. I thought this...

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
