Concord Museum

The Concord Museum is the one place where all of Concord’s remarkable past is brought to life through an inspiring collection of historical, literary and decorative arts treasures. The museum’s collection includes one of the lanterns hung at the Old North Church in the North End of Boston on the night of April 18, 1775, as well as artifacts and exhibits associated with the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Located at 200 Lexington Road, this museum features “original artifacts associated with Thoreau, Emerson and other antislavery activists,” and the “museum galleries examine the concept of liberty and the ability of individuals to affect change.”
