Harvard Museum of Natural History was one of my best experience in USA. Very compact and easy to tour while including priceless glass flowers. I was there actually in April 2014 but TA has only May 19 in its visit-time!

Do not miss the glass flower exhibit, or Nabakov's butterfly collection. Good natural history exhibits. On a nice area of Harvard's campus.

The Natural History Museum was an amazing place from the Glass Flowers which are certainly one of the more amazing things I've seen. The minerals and gemstones section are not to be missed. It's worth the visit and we will return.

One half the museum deals with natural history such as animals & fish from the earliest fossils to present day. Also a fabulous geological section with gems and geodes of all types and sizes. The other half deals with anthropology or various peoples of the world. From the American Indian tribes to the Maya and Aztec tribes of South America. The modes of living and their arts and crafts as well as models and replicas of their dwellings. An excellent choice for a family full day activity.
