Period Rooms

Overview

Rich with furnishings from Concord homes, the Museum’s five period rooms offer a glimpse into the domestic lives of men and women of Concord. At the Concord Museum, visitors enjoy a privileged, inside look at an icon of American letters that is perhaps without parallel—the Study of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Housed at the Museum since 1930, the Study serves as an ideal starting point for visitors to understand Emerson and his world. The Study’s furnishings, paintings and prints, and the personal objects on view offer an intimate, up-close look at a place “made pleasant by pictures and sunshine.”
