Owner description: The Concord Museum in historic Concord, Massachusetts houses one of the oldest and most treasured collections of Americana in the country.

The Concord Museum is a beautiful and modern presentation of the history of Concord, including its most famous residents. A self-guided tour allows you to follow your own pace and read as much or as little as catches your eye. The complete study from Ralph Waldo Emerson's house and the furnishings from Thoreau's cabin at Walden Pond are great highlights. The Museum also features very informative presentations of the Battle of Lexington & Concord, as well as period information tracing the history of the town. Along with the National Park Visitor Center, this is a great place to start a visit to Concord.

I love history and museums so I got something out of it. There are many nice pieces but I felt there could have been more revolutionary articles and maybe more signed works by the authors on exhibit and some more original maps and town official documents.

However, piece de resistance! One of the original lanterns from North Church.

Concord has three periods of particular interest: the native American, Revolutionary, and Transcendental. This museum offers informative displays on all three, with suitable artifacts. It was particularly inspiring to see Emerson's study. Start with the short video: the pianist is Jacqueline Schwab, who has played for most of the Ken Burns PBS documentaries.

Worth a quick run through while in Concord. See Paul Reveres lamp! A bit old style museum set up but they do make it interseting.
Also Great Gift Shop!

The Concord Museum is great on any day but especially when you can catch a special exhibit. For example, i saw the works of Daniel Chester French the last time I went. The Christmas Tree exhibit designed by childrens authors has become a holiday tradition.
