Whipple Museum of the History of Science Review

This rather delightful, dusty old cupboard of a museum contains all manner of scientific artifacts, instruments, and doodads from the medieval period to the early 20th century. Most fun is the section on astronomy, including a beautiful 18th-century grand orrary—an elaborate three-dimensional model of the solar system, minus the planets that had yet to be discovered at the time.
