    Many Minutes Man Park
    The potential to see the houses and historical sites was good here. The ones that were marked with placards, were interesting and following the information that I downloaded from the internet made it possible to follow the events of that day, in a somewhat disjointed way, by car. I think the most meaningful way to see it would be to walk the trail, but it would have required more time than we had. We spent a 1/2 day here, including an additional stop at Orchard House. The movie a the visitor center was a good way to learn of the events, but we did it at the end, after driving in chronological order, so it was sort of non-plus at that point. We followed up with a few sites in Lexington, on our way to Salem.

    So many iconic Revolutionary War sites!
    A must for any American history buff. Too many sites to visit in one day--battlefields, Old North Bridge. Homes of 19th century authors and philosophers (Alcott, Emerson, Thoreau and more) are nearby.

    Historical experience!
    Visiting Boston, my husband and I spent the morning at the Minute Man National Historical Park. The 25 minute movie with enteractive maps helps you understand how the events and battles unfolded. Very well done. The staff and Park Rangers were very friendly and knowledgeable. Beautiful paths and ponds to walk!

    Iconic Minute Man statue and its story worth knowing!
    On this visit to the Minute Man National Historical Park, we stopped to see the 1874 Minute Man statue designed by Daniel Chester French. A native of Massachusetts, French was just 24 years old...and not a sculptor...when he designed this iconic figure. We enjoyed our walk from the North Bridge Visitors Center to the Concord Visitor Center, where we watched the video and checked out exhibits sharing the historical background of the park.

We visited here as part of a tour from our cruise ship stopped in Boston. A lot of history in this area - you have to be into American history in a big way to get the most from a visit here. As NZers, I confess we are not hugely into American history. It was also a very wet day when we were there, which rather ruined our stops.
Nevertheless the stop at North Bridge was mildly interesting. Homes of many 19th century authors are nearby so can be visited at the same time.

We really enjoyed our time here. On the day we were lucky enough to see two Ranger presentations and have learnt so much about this period of American history.

The eastern visitors center has a great 3D presentation on the battle and Paul Reveres ride. The ranger talk was highly entertaining and educational and kept my kids' interest. This is worth visiting for all Americans to see where it all started.

I visited the Minute Man NHP in Early November and it was an amazing experience. I was the only one there (600am) and I enjoyed every minute. I spent most my time at the Old North Bridge. This was not my first time here, but this visit had a huge impact ! National Park System did a fantastic job

I did the trolley tour that left from Lexington that goes thru the Park. The Park covers the sights associated with the start of the Revolution. You can stop at the sight where Paul Revere was captured by the Recoats. You can visit Concord Bridge where the Minutemen fired on the Recoats prompting their retreat to Boston. At Meriam's Corner it is the start of the guerilla sniping by the Patriots at the redcoats as they retreat back to Boston.
