Don’t Miss the Summer Events at the Harvard Museum of Natural History

The Harvard Museum of Natural History has a jam-packed events calendar this summer, and if you haven’t been to this exceptional institution, now is the time to visit. The museum boasts a range of exhibits, from dioramas of New England forests and animals of the world to marine life, the Cenozoic Era, and planetary sciences. 

Perhaps the most well-known of all their collections is Glass Flowers, a treasure of over 4,000 plant models by glass artists Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka. The permanent installations alone offer plenty to see and do any time you visit, but the museum also hosts a variety of educational programs and special exhibits all year long. This summer brings the Summer Solstice Celebration, science week activities, and much more. Admissions prices to the Harvard Museum of Natural History range from $10 to $15, or stop by your local library to get passes for the museum and adjoining Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology for just $6.
