Fantastic museum with artifacts from Paul Revere and 1 of the lanterns that hung in the church tower. The museum has a great movie that gives a better overview of the battle on April 19.

Impressive museum. I was surprised this small local museum was well developed and professional. Comprehensive coverage of the connections to Native Americans and women's history along with the expected Rev War and Transcendental wriers. Highlights for me were Native American artifacts, Thoreau's writing desk, and the original working models of the Minuteman Statue and Seated Lincoln by David French. The exhibition of the events of April 19, 1775 was outstanding! I highly recommend visiting.

Cool place but theres this guy who asked me to take him and his group of people to this place called "Sanctuary Hills" and then told me theres settlements that needed help.

This little gem of a museum has a top notch audio visual display of Paul Revere's ride and the subsequent battle. Great for kids; pair this with a visit to the nearby bike trail and you've got a perfect family outing.

A great part of a day trip to Concord. Seeing authentic artifacts from the towns history from the revolution to its authors. Spent about 2 or 3 hours there, the new April 19th exhibit is fantastic!

I'm sorry, but there's no time for a visit. We received word from another settlement that they need our help. I'll mark it on your map.

This was a highlight of our visit to Concord. The Paul Revere gallery was wonderful, but the literary artifacts were amazing. The museum was very careful with the number of people booked in advance and sanitizing. I felt very safe there.

Astounding that so many of America's most important moments in history are documented by the collections of what some would consider to be a "small" museum....
