What travelers say:

When I was a little friend Amway, I didn't care at first, I felt that the museum on campus was very difficult to create too high a surprise, I was hit in the face when I went there, and I had a great time visiting with my friends, I couldn't stop, and there were all kinds of exotic exhibits, A dazzling list of Boston's favorite museums, the Harvard Museum of Natural History, is also home to the museum, which was founded in 1998 with three different themes: botanical specimens, comparative zoology and mineral geology. The museum was built by the donation of 20 million botanical materials by Harvard University professor Asa Gray at the beginning of the museum, and the museum of minerals and geology was donated in 1977, and the comparative zoology museum was completed in 1859. Each theme pavilion has wonderful places, each pavilion wanders to the happy floating, the glass flower display of the botanical specimen museum, the comparison of zoology of various animal specimens, only you can not think of, there is no there, the favorite is the mineral geology museum, all kinds of exquisite ore, It feels like it's rarely seen in other museums so large and elaborate.
