Exploring historic Concord? Begin at the Concord Museum! An inspiring collection of American treasures includes the 1775 “one, if by land, two, if by sea” Revere lantern, Thoreau’s Walden desk and Emerson’s Study. Enjoy engaging, self-touring history galleries, family-friendly activities, and distinctive special exhibitions.
From the shot heard round the world to the literary revolution of Emerson and Thoreau, the Concord Museum brings Concord’s remarkable story to life through exhibitions that present ideas relevant to today – concepts of liberty, turning beliefs into actions, self-reliance, independent thinking and environmental preservation.
