Concord Museum is closed and will reopen this spring! Be sure to check our calendar for Concord Museum Forums and other virtual programs. Please also enjoy our new award winning 'Shot Heard Round the World' virtual exhibition.
Behind Closed Doors: Asleep in New England uncovered the complex role sleep has played in everyday life throughout American history, drawing upon the expertise of Consulting Curators Jane and Richard Nylander and their groundbreaking research to explore the material culture of sleeping, as well as the Concord Museum’s exceptional collection. Dressing tables, necessary chairs, washstands, high chests, coffins, cradles, and adult cradles from the Concord Museum’s decorative arts collection and from the collections of Historic New England, Old Sturbridge Village, and other New England institutions were on display.
