Join us for a free, fun night at the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Come with a date, come with friends, or make new friends while strolling through the galleries.

This month, learn how photographers and scientists document biodiversity and use art to help people connect with nature.

  • Visit the photography exhibit Frogs! Through an Ecology Lens, to learn about the diversity of frogs in India.
  • Attend the lecture, India: An Amphibian Hotspot, presented by scientist and photographer S. D. Biju, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm.
  • Visit In Search of Thoreau’s Flowers, an art and science exhibition inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s plant collections from Concord, Massachusetts.
  • Create a cyanotype—a camera-less photographic print—using local plant material guided by photographer Leah Sobsey whose work is featured in the Thoreau exhibit.
  • Take some snaps in our photo booth with fun nature-themed props and backgrounds.
  • Purchase drinks at the cash bar (valid government ID required to consume alcoholic beverages).
  • Enter a free raffle to win museum gifts and membership.
  • Free and open to the public.  Let us know you are coming! RSVPs are encouraged, but walk-in visitors are always welcome.


Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.

Presented by the Harvard Museum of Natural History, the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, and Harvard Museums of Science & Culture.
