Be sure to watch the introductory film (10 mins) prior to visiting the exhibits on the City of Concord. This city has a rich history and the film helps set the stage. Though reviews we had read recommended an hour for the museum we ended up spending more than that. The exhibits are well laid out and there docents throughout... 更多
Although it's not that large, this museum and its docents, along with some well-prepared flyers throughout give you a strong sense of the history of this area. There's a wide variety, from rooms set up to replicate life in those days, displays of the work of sculptors, metalwork artists and sewing/handiwork displays. Very enjoyable.
When we visited the museum, we were lucky enough to go on a day when entry was free, but it is worth paying the $10 dollar admission price. The museum charts life in Concord from the earliest native Americans, through the coming of the Puritans, the battle of April 19th 1775 and notable persons of the town, including authors such... 更多
This is a gem of a museum giving not only the history of this Revolutionary town but also of its role in the intellectual development of the US. At Christmas there is a display of trees with children's book themes. Not to be missed in any season.
This is a must for Concord travelers. The museum offers a self-guided tour and a lovely gift shop. Allow at least 90 minutes. They offer a package where you can buy a ticket to the museum and add either Emerson's house or Orchard House (Alcott) for a discount. Absolutely worth it!
Stopped here based on TripAdvisor reviews. Glad we did. It's really more about life in early Concord than the Revolutionary War so don't expect much on that. Very interesting and well worth the entrance fee. Extremely nice and helpful folks throughout to answer questions.
The Concord Museum's current atteaction is "N.C. Wyeth's Men of Concord". This is a collection of 12 panels that Wyeth painted for Henry David Thoreau's book, "Men of Concord and Some Others". The illustrations were interesting, but even more so was the admiration Wyeth and Thoreau had for each other. Wyeth painted these panels because he shared Thoreau's disdain for... 更多
Visited the Museum recently to take in the N.C. Wyeth 'Men of Concord' exhibit, which was outstanding. A great opportunity to see the original artwork of one of our great illustrators. Additionally, this work was the twelve original pieces for the book of the same name, which had not previously been displayed together. After enjoying the Wyeth exhibit, we took... 更多
This museum is well laid out in terms of flow of traffic and in terms of how the history of the town was presented. Interesting mix of items - Paul Revere's silver, Indian artifacts, muskets, household goods, furniture, textiles..... We thoroughly enjoyed our time. We took our time, and saw everything including the gift shop is about an hour. Oh,... 更多
They have a NC Wyeth/ Thoreau exhibit of paintings until Sept. and one of the lanterns lit in the Old North Church for Paul Revere.
