The Concord Museum is a museum of local history located at 53 Cambridge Turnpike, Concord, Massachusetts, United States, and best known for its collection of artifacts from authors Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. It is open daily except major holidays; an admission fee is charged.
Founded in 1886, the museum's collections started around 1850. Few collections of early Americana are as old or well documented. Its most notable items and collections include:
The "one if by land, and two if by sea" lantern, said to be hung in the Old North Church in 1775, and immortalized in the 1860 poem "Paul Revere's Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
