Harvard Natural History Museum

Connected to the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology at the Harvard University is another fine Harvard museum dedicated to natural history. As you can expect from Harvard, it was pretty impressive for a university museum. Being a natural history museum it sadly offers the disturbing  stuffed animals on display as well as the mandatory dino skeletons, but there are also more interesting exhibits the museum is famous for featuring glass flowers and plants as well as an amazing collection of meteorites (The Mineralogical and Geological Gallery).

 

Alright, then, let’s start with the stuffies…
