Families who visit this engaging museum find learning about history is a fun, shared experience
Families who immerse themselves in the varied exhibits at the Concern Museum find that learning about America’s history can be both enlightening – and fun! Start at the Family Station to get a Family Trail guide and drawing materials so you can hunt for objects, learn fun facts and and sketch favorite objects (don’t forget to share your artwork). Favorite objects include Native American stone tools and one of the lanterns that signaled Paul Revere to take his famous ride. There are several hands-on areas as well as activities to take home. The museum has plenty of places to rest, chat and draw – and strollers are welcome! Check the online calendar for special holiday and school vacation events, crafts sessions and other group activities.
