Concord Museum, Concord

(4.4/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very interesting museum covering the history of Concord. Many of the exhibits cater to educational outreach for school groups. It must be great to have such a resource to bring history to life and mak...  more »
  • A small local Museum, which perfectly illustrates the beginnings of this city and its vicissitudes until the independence of the United States. Well-drafted explanatory panels, exposed wisely historical and thematic material. In December 2016, is exhibited a precious collection of antique dolls houses. To have a good time on the visit.

  • Great artifacts and friendly staff, with abundant and delicate exhibition here.I also love small activities for children in the museum, let kids learning from the life and art ,so nice. Five stars,it deserved!!
  • One of the first places i visited in Concord, a few people there weren't very friendly but we resolved our differences, did meet a few people in there that were nice though and needed my help getting to the town up the road. Did some tinkering with their generator and believe it or not found a very old suit of power armour on the roof, and a Minigun, instantly jumped off the roof and hung out with the locals until a deathclaw burst from the sewers and tried to eat me.
  • Awful experience.. Came here with a group and thought it might be a nice place to settle down, raiders ambushed the place. Had to get another guy to clear them out for us. Dont even get me started on the 12ft lizard outside.
  • Pretty small but interesting place. They have a little kids scavenger hunt and some nice things for little kids to see and certainly worth a visit if you had a short time to kill in the area.
  • Nice local museum. A little expensive, but a good way to spend an hour
