Harvard Campus Walking Tour and Admission to Natural History Museum

    What to Expect
    Harvard University doesn’t really need any introduction. The private Ivy League research university in Cambridge, MA, was established in 1636 and since that time, its history, influence and wealth have made it one of the most prestigious universities in the world. It’s listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and it’s a U.S. National Historic Landmark District.
    On this exclusive Harvard campus tour, meet the guide and students who will provide an inside look at college life in Cambridge and start this 1-hour walking tour of the university.
    Begin at Harvard Yard, an area of just over 22 acres that’s enclosed by fences with 27 gates. Not only is it the oldest part of the campus, it’s also the center of its history and the crossroads of its modern-day campus with dorms, libraries and classrooms. Check out Old Yard with Harvard’s oldest building, Massachusetts Hall. Then head to Harvard Square near the center of Cambridge, with everything from bookstores, coffee houses, fine dining and pizza to old theaters, public art, street performers and world-class music.
    Finally, if you'd like, choose to explore the Harvard Museum of Natural History, the public face of three research museums: the Museum of Comparative Zoology, the Harvard University Herbaria, and the Mineralogical & Geological Museum.

    It is a good choice for all ages. You should wear comfortable shoes to walk about a mile and a half.
