I visited before Covid and had such a great time. The museum isn't huge, but there is a lot to see. When we went there were even staff members doing demonstrations and holding some animals. Whenever the museum reopens I can't wait to go back.

Harvard Museum of Natural History was one of my best experience in USA. Very compact and easy to tour while including priceless glass flowers. I was there actually in April 2014 but TA has only May 19 in its visit-time!

Do not miss the glass flower exhibit, or Nabakov's butterfly collection. Good natural history exhibits. On a nice area of Harvard's campus.

The Natural History Museum was an amazing place from the Glass Flowers which are certainly one of the more amazing things I've seen. The minerals and gemstones section are not to be missed. It's worth the visit and we will return.
