Harvard Museum of Natural History

Interesting
Grouped under one roof, these four museums hold 21 million specimens and artifacts that make up Harvard's outstanding research collections. Many of the galleries retain the old-fashioned air of a 19C exhibition hall but don't be put off by the no-frills presentation; these collections are well worth a visit.
