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 exhibition celebrated the 150th anniversary of the publication of Henry David Thoreau’s Walden; or, Life in the Woods, one of the seminal works that has shaped the American character. Artifacts and images explored the generations of visitors for whom Walden Pond has been home, workplace, playground and sacred ground.
