About this Organization:
Founded in 1886, the Concord Museum has a nationally significant collection of over 35,000 objects, widely emulated education programs, and an active changing exhibition program. The Museum educates visitors of all ages about the history of Concord and its continuing influence on American political, literary, and cultural life. Renowned as the site of one of the first battles of the American Revolution and the home of great American writers and thinkers, including Emerson and Thoreau, Concord has long been a popular destination. The Museum is a center for cultural enjoyment for the region and a gateway to the town of Concord for visitors from around the world. The collection includes American icons such as Paul Revere's lantern; the contents of Henry David Thoreau's cabin at Walden Pond; major Revolutionary War holdings; and exceptionally well-documented furniture, clocks, silver, ceramics, textiles and other artifacts. Accredited by AAM since 1973, the Museum is open 362 days a year and is located 20 miles from Boston.
