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.
This innovative exhibition explored treasures from the Massachusetts Historical Society from a variety of perspectives—as items associated with important historical figures or events; as objects of beauty; as exceptional survivals from the past; and as conveyors of amazing stories. The layers of meaning imbedded in each object were revealed through the discerning eyes of Concord Museum Curator David Wood and Massachusetts Historical Society Librarian Peter Drummey. The exhibition included rarely exhibited 17th- and 18th-century objects and related documents from the Society’s exceptional holdings
