Visited the Museum recently to take in the N.C. Wyeth 'Men of Concord' exhibit, which was outstanding. A great opportunity to see the original artwork of one of our great illustrators. Additionally, this work was the twelve original pieces for the book of the same name, which had not previously been displayed together. After enjoying the Wyeth exhibit, we took... More

Constant Companion and I really enjoyed the "Wyeth: Andrew and Jamie in the Studio" at Madrid's Museo Thyssen earlier this year so naturally "N. C. Wyeth’s Men of Concord" exhibition was greatly anticipated. This exhibit was thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining. It brings together for the first time in nearly eighty years the twelve original panels which N. C. Wyeth painted... More

This museum is well laid out in terms of flow of traffic and in terms of how the history of the town was presented. Interesting mix of items - Paul Revere's silver, Indian artifacts, muskets, household goods, furniture, textiles..... We thoroughly enjoyed our time. We took our time, and saw everything including the gift shop is about an hour. Oh,... More

I was expecting this to focus on the role of Concord in the independence battles and indeed it does, but there is more to Concord than that. The town has a surprising literary, philosophical and social history and this lovely museum brings all of that to life. Well worth a visit for a hour or two.

This is a sweet and quaint museum with friendly staff. There is artwork, information related to Thoreau, settlers, natives, local authors and the history of the town and area. There are re-creations of rooms and settings of the time when Puritans first came. I especially enjoyed the portion about the native Algonkian / Algonquian people. You can see arrowheads and...

We enjoyed this self guided tour. There is a short video and several exhibits of historical and decorative arts treasures. We specifically came to see the Paul Revere lantern. We had visited the North Church in Boston, and they told us that this one was the original! We were a bit disappointed that admission was $10 per adult since there... More

The history of Concord and environs, laid out chronologically and with historical items of interest. A little more detail would be appreciated, but this is a good overview of this area.

A very nice self-guided tour that begins with a video of the history of Concord followed by a series of exhibitions highlighting the significant events in the town’s history. Obviously most exhibits focus on the revolutionary war, and the town’s literary history. We especially enjoyed Emerson’s study which the museum acquired and now displays, along with items of furniture used... More
