Explore 11,000 specimens drawn from Harvard’s vast research collections at the University's most visited museum -- dinosaurs, meteorites, rare minerals, and hundreds of prehistoric and current-day animals from around the globe. Get close to the world’s only mounted Kronosaurus, a 42 ft-long marine reptile; one of the first Triceratops ever discovered; a 1,642 lb. amethyst geode; 3 whale skeletons. Don’t miss the world famous exhibit of 2,000 ‘Glass Flowers’, amazingly realistic models of plants, fruits and flowers created by father-son glass artists Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka from 1886-1936. Explore regional wildlife in the new exhibitions, Marine Life in the Putnam Family Gallery and the Zofnass gallery’s New England Forests

The museum is on the Harvard University campus, just a short, 8-minute walk through historic Harvard Yard from the Harvard Square MBTA Red Line ‘T’ station.
