Reopening Plans

The Harvard Museum of Natural History will open for limited in-person visitation solely for Harvard faculty, students, and staff with a valid Harvard ID starting September 1, 2021. Guests of Harvard ID holders are not allowed at this time. Harvard Faculty who wish to schedule a class visit may contact the HMNH Reservations Department.  We are working with Harvard University on a phased reopening and look forward to sharing details for public access soon.
