Cambridge Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice

The Harvard Museum of Natural History (which exhibits specimens from the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University Herbaria, and the Mineralogical and Geological Museum) displays some 12,000 specimens, including dinosaurs, rare minerals, hundreds of mammals and birds, and Harvard's world-famous Blaschka Glass Flowers. The museum combines historic exhibits drawn from the university's vast collections with new and changing multimedia exhibitions such as New England Forests and Mollusks: Shelled Masters of the Marine Realm, and the renovated Earth & Planetary Sciences gallery.
