harvard museum of natural history

This past labor day weekend, we had a pretty wet Sunday. While I'm sure this rained out some people's plans, it was the perfect timing for us. Because there is nothing better than a rainy day museum visit
We've already been total hipsters at the Institute of Contemporary Art. And we're regular visitors of both the Fine Art Museum & the quirkiest Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (my favorite), so we decided to try something new and cross Harvard's Museum of Natural History off our boston bucket list.
 From the tiny creepy crawly specimens to the giant whale skeletons, we loved it all. This museum is on the smaller side, but is so well done and classic. And it gets bonus points because visiting the museum of natural history also gets you access to the Peabody Museum of Archeology and Ethnology. 
the dentist in me definitely appreciated all the different exhibits on teeth
naturally, I was drawn to the world map

Had an amazing rainy morning in Harvard Square learning all the things. My smarty pants husband has had a few job offers with Harvard and worked here, so it was nice for me to finally see the campus too. We're lucky to have access to a big city right now with so many educational and cultural activities. If you can't tell, we are definitely taking advantage of it.
