Concord Museum, Concord

4.3
The Concord Museum is the one place where all of Concord’s remarkable past is brought to life through artifacts from the Museum’s outstanding collection, rarely-seen images, period room settings, audio presentations, and creative hands-on activities. Highlights include "Why Concord?"—six history galleries accompanied by a film, "Exploring Concord"; a nationally-significant collection of decorative arts, featuring Concord-made clocks, silver and furniture; Native American stone tools; the 1775 lantern ordered by Paul Revere to be hung in the church steeple and made famous by Longfellow’s poem “Paul Revere’s Ride”; Emerson's study where he wrote his influential essays; and the world’s largest collection of Thoreau's possessions, including the desk on which he wrote “Civil Disobedience” and "Walden." In addition to the changing exhibitions in the Graham Gund-designed galleries, the Museum features a Museum Shop and a complete year-round calendar of programs for adults and children. The Museum is wheelchair accessible.

  • The main museum is under renovation and won't be fully ready until October. When I went on July 7th they only had a few exhibits available to view for $5 per adult. They are open daily in the summer from 10am to 4pm. Free for active duty military.
  • Unfortunately we toured when the museum was under construction so we only got to see a little of the collection. Moreover, the staff kept am eerily keen watch on us... Somewhat discomforting... Wasn't a good start to our day...
