Amazing tour through Concord's History. A wing dedicated to the Shot Heard Round the World and an amazing walk through the Civil War Era. I learned a lot about the famous abolitionists of the Era.
This small but superbly curated museum covers Concord history from the earliest human occupation at the end of the last ice age, through the heyday of the indigenous population and its end with the arrival of the Europeans. It also reviews the experience of Blacks in Concord. Thus it gives a nuanced picture of the town's history while giving due prominence to its role in the Revolution and to its illustrious literary community.
Well done, as in a high quality experience. My opinion is that the best exhibit is the large wall on the second floor that tells the story of the shot heard round the world. Graphics, sound, story, complete with graphics. It tied Emerson to Thoreau and others. I suggest at least 90 minutes.
The recently upgraded museum has expanded facilities, including the long-standing traditional colonial history exhibits as well as a new section with ample exploration of indigenous history. The featured exhibit space is always a winner, featuring local historical, artistic, and cultural special exhibits.
Was blown away. We simply never had any idea that we’d walk into such a well curated, clean, well run museum. The artifacts were unexpected and really outstanding. If you have any interest in the beginning g of our country this is a must.
