Would love to spend some time here but the place is never open, need to make an appointment, should be like a library, readily available for the public. They received great donations, wonder where it all goes? A fee if you are not member, I am but still little access

There are a lot of beautiful buildings right in this small concentrated area of Concord, like the State Capitol, which are fun to take pictures of, but it was too chilly to walk around outside the whole time so we ducked in here, and ended up really enjoying it. The early Native American history and natural history of the area was most well-done. I was also impressed by the staff. I randomly asked if "Franklin Pierce was as bad a president as they make him out to be in text books," and the lady at the desk had a very well-thought answer as to why it's possible we can't know for sure because the string of presidents before and after, and including Pierce, were faced with serving during an extremely difficult era. Definitely came away with a better appreciation for both local and national history.
