Concord Museum

200 Lexington Road, Concord, MA 01742
(978) 369-9763

For a small town, Concord has a big history. From the “shot heard round the world” to the writers of the American literary renaissance, things have happened here, words have been spoken here, and books have been written here which changed the face of a nation. And nowhere is that important heritage captured more dramatically than at the Concord Museum—the ideal place to begin your visit to this picturesque community.

Highlights include:
- Native American stone tools from 4,000–7,000 years ago
- Revolutionary War artifacts including the famous 1775 Paul Revere lantern
- Ralph Waldo Emerson’s study and Henry David Thoreau’s bed, desk, and chair from Walden Pond
- Period rooms rich with furnishings that offer a glimpse into three centuries of home life in Concord

And much more!
