Although the Museum of Natural History is a museum of Harvard University, it is also unexpectedly beautiful. This is a tourist attraction that is basically chosen to visit Harvard. It is worth visiting if you bring children with you.
The collection is rich and informative, with lots of student tourists
I remember Ma said there was a Sykler museum. There were 60 pieces of enamelware. Especially the rose- purple pot and the sky-blue pot. It was beautiful and it was not like the Ming Dynasty.
Tickets are $12. Worthy of being a world-class university, it has a museum with such a wealth of exhibits that it is worth visiting. Compared with the Natural History Museum in Washington, New York, the exhibition area is not very large, but the layout is very compact and the exhibits are more dense. The treasure of the town hall is Glass Flowers, which is the only one, officially named Blaschka Glass Model, which is very realistic. It is recommended to visit here first. In addition, animal specimens are also worth seeing. There are not only beautiful specimens of butterflies, insects and birds, but also large animals, including dinosaurs, lions, and gorillas, which are all lifelike. The humanities exhibition hall includes weapons, costumes, stone carvings and so on. There are not many people in the whole museum, so you can take a closer look, and the visit effect is better.
