Orchard House Concord 9.2 km away
#1 of 4 Museums in Concord
They were a fascinating family and the museum and tour made me fall in love with The Alcotts and Little Women.
The Alcott house is a good mile from the center of town so park at the Concord Museum which is central to the main sites within walking distance.

The Harvard Museum of Natural History may be smaller than most major metropolitan natural history museums, but it has an amazing collection that easily rivals larger facilities.
