As Harvard University works to welcome a limited number of students and staff back to campus, Harvard Museums of Science & Culture continues to monitor the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and consider enhanced protocols for a safe return for onsite visitors. While we remain temporarily closed, we encourage you to enjoy the museum at home with new and frequently refreshed digital content via HMSC Connects!. Stay tuned for a full schedule of virtual fall programs, including classes, tours, lectures, and events.
