Harvard Museum of Natural History
A museum for everyone to enjoy, with plenty to see and to.
A closer look at the natural world
Three spaces in one. This is how the Harvard Museum of Natural History could be described since it includes the Museum of Comparative Zoology, the Harvard University Herbaria and the Mineralogical and Geological Museum. These three museums are dedicated to studying, investigating and preserving the natural world in order to introduce visitors of all age groups to Nature’s weird and wonderful ways. This Museum is the most visited attraction at Harvard (some 190,000 visitors a year), thanks not only to the success of its permanent collection but also of its temporary exhibitions. Master classes, lectures and other events are all also held in the Museum. It is open from 9am to 5pm and entry costs 12 dollars. Discover it at 26 Oxford Street, in Cambridge, and also online at www.hmnh.harvard.edu.
