Concord Museum

A $10.00 value - Included with your Go Boston Card!

Concord Museum is a great place to start your tour of Concord and Lexington. Tucked away in a Colonial revival building on the side of a tree-lined country road, the Concord Museum houses amazing artifacts of American history. On exhibit is one of the lanterns hung in the Old North Church on the night of April 18, 1775, as well as other relics of the American Revolution. The Concord Museum also holds the world's most comprehensive collection of artifacts associated with Henry D. Thoreau, including the desk on which he wrote the influential 'Walden' and 'Civil Disobedience'. The Museum also houses the study of Ralph Waldo Emerson, the great American spokesman for individualism and self reliance.

The Concord Museum collection is a distinguished one containing numerous examples of 17th, 18th, and 19th-century decorative arts, case furniture, tables, seating furniture, clocks, looking glasses, textiles, ceramics, and metalware. Curators, historians, and educators have recognized the collection for its national significance for more than a century.

Worthwhile Stop in Concord

Comments about Smart Destinations Concord Museum:

Concord is chock full of historical sites - The Old Manse, The Orchard House, etc. This is a worthwhile museum to visit when close by because it provides a chronologic history of the town. Still, I wouldn't make a special trip here to see just this museum in the way I would for the Orchard House. I do love that they have one of the lanterns used at the North Church to warn Paul Revere of how the British were arriving. That's pretty cool
