Fodor's Review

An almost unknown gem, this Harvard institution serves as an exhibit space for Egyptian, Mesopotamian, and ancient Near East artifacts and as a center for archaeological exploration. Who knew that the Sphinx may have had curls? The museum's extensive collection rotates and there are temporary exhibits, so you never know what you might see here. The building also houses the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilization, with offices tucked among the artifacts.
