Renowned as the site of the battle that began the American Revolution and the home of many influential writers, Concord has played a remarkable role in the history of the nation. Founded in 1886, the Concord Museum serves as the gateway to Concord for visitors from around the world. An outstanding collection includes three centuries of Concord furniture, silver clocks; the famous 1775 Revere lantern; Emerson’s study; and the desk on which Thoreau wrote Walden. Visitors of all ages learn about the principles of freedom, democracy, economic interdependence, and our cultural heritage through exhibitions, school programs, lectures, and family activities.
