The Paul Revere’s Ride Fund at the Concord Museum provides curriculum-based, hands-on education programs to students from schools that otherwise might not be able to afford the cost of a field trip to the Museum. The Museum is committed towards expanding access to the Museum for students from under-served communities. We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to experience history first-hand and to interact with authentic objects that tell stories about the past.
With support from the Paul Revere’s Ride Fund, the Museum has successfully created a partnership with the public school systems in Lowell and Lawrence to bring high quality history education to their students. Since its inception in 2014, the Fund underwrites transportation and other program expenses so that over 3,000 students per year can immerse themselves in a stimulating history learning experience at the Museum completely free of charge. These students would otherwise not have the opportunity to touch stone artifacts dating back thousands of years, role play as Concord citizens from the Revolution, or sample colonial food they have prepared and cooked – experiences that enrich their education well after their visits end.
