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.
The Concord Museum celebrated the 375th anniversary of the founding of the town of Concord with a special exhibition, “into your hands…” featuring objects that have been passed down in Concord’s families and then entrusted to the Concord Museum. The exhibition included portraits, jewelry, needlework, ceramics, clothing, furniture, clocks and silver, all donated to the Concord Museum by family members with the intent to preserve Concord’s history for generations to come. The title “into your hands…” was taken from a 1942 letter written by Lucy Merriam Brigham describing her gift of family possessions to the Museum.
