Volunteer walked around to add interesting comments about the exhibits and to answer questions. The Concord coach was very nice. The fire tower built into the building and the views from its top were great!

Admission is $5.50 for adults, your AAA card will save you $1 each. We arrived at 4:15 and it was to close at 5. I told the lady we should of received more of a discount. Its a small museum on two floors. There is not much there. We did the whole thing in 45 minutes.

The Concord stage coach was the only thing worth seeing but not worth what we paid to get in to see it. Parking is in the back and they do validate parking by giving you a coin to insert into machine to get out. You can and you should enter from the State House side since it is right across the street from it. Make sure you have enough time on your meter. Concord is tough on expired meters.

The museum is quaint but I guess they are in dire need of money...but it's just not worth it.
