Join us on a trip to Cambridge, Massachusetts to explore the Harvard Museum of Natural History and Harvard Square. Your fee covers travel and your admission to the museum (which also includes admission to The Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology).
The Harvard Museum of Natural History was established in 1998 as the public face of three research museums: the Museum of Comparative Zoology, the Harvard University Herbaria, and the Mineralogical & Geological Museum. Presenting these incomparable collections and the research of scientists across the University, the Harvard Museum of Natural History’s mission is to enhance public understanding and appreciation of the natural world and the human place in it, sparking curiosity and a spirit of discovery in people of all ages.
Exhibitions: Africa, Arthropods, Asia, Birds of the World, Cenozoic Mammals, Central and South America, Climate Change, Earth & Planetary Sciences, Evolution, From the Hands of the Makers, Glass Flowers, Great Mammal Hall, In Search of Thoreau’s Flowers, Marine Life, New England Forests, Orb-Weavers, The Rockefeller Beetles, Romer Hall of Vertebrate Paleontology, Sea Creatures in Glass, and Swimming with Sharks.
Today’s museum reflects both the history of its affiliate museums and an evolution toward a twenty-first-century institution that presents cutting-edge research, addresses contemporary issues, and offers creative educational experience in a unique, intimate setting.
