Harvard Museum of Natural History
Harvard Museum of Natural History is one of the University's most visited museum. With Dinosaurs, meteorites, gemstones, and hundreds of mammals from all over the world, in addition to the world famous collection of 3,000 Blaschka Glass Flowers, you can see why the museum is so popular. You can also view a lot of changing exhibits, such as Sea Creatures in Glass and changing photography exhibitions. There's always something new to see!
I've been interning in the Boston area this summer and this has been one of my favorite museums that I have visited. You wouldn't expect such a large and diverse collection from a university museum, but they have done a wonderful job of creating an atmosphere that is engaging for kids and adults. I have visited more than a few times and still get something out of it.

Oh yeah...and don't forget to visit the world-renowned glass flowers. They are AMAZING.
It's hard to believe that the glass flowers aren't real..My son loved all the real 'stuffed animals'. You can get so close to the animals --Bengal tiger, elephant, rhino-- and see strange ones like pangolin or echidnas..or a giant hammerhead shark.
The minerals, including a 1,642 pound amethyst geode from Brazil, are amazing.
