On Lexington common and witness to the events of the day. Interesting self guided tour w audio and a very helpful/knowledgable museum staff. Well worth the visit. Seeing the artifacts and the musket..... more »
Purchased as part of the Boston Go card. Was a great perspective of the battle at Lexington from the Tavern. It is a self-guided audio tour with an interactive area upstairs that melds history with modern day social networking. My youngest (9) was done with the audio tour by the final room (#5), but had a blast upstairs. Overall it was lots of fun. I would definitely suggest using the Go card.
Awesome self guided tour. They do a great job making the history come alive! You can get a good deal on visiting all three museums which are within walkings distance of each other. We went there for memorial day and it did not disappoint; but I also just love history and it was so cool to be walking right through where it all happened. The staff are friendly, helpful, and informative. A great way to spend a day in Lexington!
