Exploration of Emerson’s Study

Join the NEMA YEPs for a behind-the-scenes at the Concord Museum, the museum of the history of Concord, Massachusetts! As part of the planning for the reinstallation of the permanent collections at the museum, staff are interested in learning what sparks visitors’ interest when they are looking at an

immersive space or period room. To that end, we would like to invite you to go behind the barriers of author Ralph Waldo Emerson’s study to participate in a facilitated group conversation with Director of Education and Public Programs, Suzi Fonda. The conversation in the study will last about 15-20 minutes, which will be recorded, followed by an opportunity to debrief as a group about the experience. Following the discussion, attendees are invited to gather in the museum’s lobby for free refreshments.

Participation is FREE and limited to 15. RSVP is required.

About the Concord Museum:

The Concord Museum is the one place where all of Concord’s remarkable past is brought to life through an inspiring collection of historical, literary, and decorative arts treasures. With one of the oldest collections of revolutionary and literary history in the country, the Museum is renowned for its national treasures. In the history galleries and period rooms of the Museum, visitors discover the famous lantern hung in the steeple on the night of Paul Revere’s ride in 1775, the contents of Henry D. Thoreau’s house at Walden Pond, including the desk on which he wrote “Civil Disobedience” and Walden, and Ralph Waldo Emerson’s study, where he wrote his influential essays and met with other distinguished writers and thinkers during the American literary renaissance. A nationally significant collection of Concord-made clocks, furniture, silver, and other decorative arts serve to illustrate three centuries of Concord’s domestic life.
