Harvard Museum of Natural History
The Harvard Museum of Natural History is one of the nation's finest university-based natural history museums. Come face to face with one of the first Triceratops ever discovered, admire a 1,642 pound amethyst geode and "wander" through a "garden" of Glass Flowers. Presenting the collections and research of Harvard's natural history institutions, the HMNH is a fun learning experience for the whole family. 21 million specimens, 4.5 billion years, ONE great experience.
