Whether it is learning about the roots of American democracy, the power of independent thinking, preservation of the environment, or the intricacies of craftsmanship, the Concord Museum brings history into the lives of learners of all ages. Visit up close with the 1775 Paul Revere lantern, intricately carved colonial powder horns, Henry David Thoreau’s wooden flute, and Ralph Waldo Emerson’s study filled with his books.

The Concord Museum has events and special exhibitions for all ages year-round.
