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.

  • This is a beautifully designed and well-operated museum. The exhibits are interesting and the space is filled with exhibits both about the historic local community as well as the evolving United State...  read more »
  • I heard the hype, but wasn't impressed. Pretty expensive for what you see. The intro movie was good but artifacts and displays were not that impressive. Glad i visited but will not return 
  • If you are visiting and want to get oriented to the town and its history, this is a good place to start. 
  • 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.
  • I think this deserves a 5 star rating because I'm going to the concord museam with my school and if we go I know other kids and schools would like it shout out to the Learning Community Charter School
  • Great exhibits and artifacts! Friendly and informed staff!
