Harvard Museum of Natural History, Harvard Museums of Science & Culture

Harvard's most visited museum, the Harvard Museum of Natural History displays some 12,000 specimens, including dinosaurs, meteorites, gemstones, hundreds of mammals, and the world famous Harvard "Glass Flowers." This unique collection of more than 3,000 incredibly life-like handcrafted models of flowering plants was flame-worked by father-son glass artisans from 1886 to 1936. The museum combines historic exhibits drawn from Harvard s vast collections with new and changing multimedia exhibitions such as New England Forests or Language of Color. One of Harvard Museums of Science & Culture, the HMNH is located on the historic campus, a seven-minute walk from the Harvard Square.

Museum of Russian Icons

Including more than 500 Russian icons and artifacts, the collection is the largest of its kind in North America. The Museum of Russian Icons was founded in 2006 as a nonprofit educational institution by Massachusetts industrialist Gordon B. Lankton. Including more than 500 Russian icons and artifacts, the collection is the largest of its kind in North America, and one of the largest private collections outside Russia. Spanning six centuries, the collection includes important historical paintings dating from the earliest periods of icon "writing" to the present. Museum Founder Gordon Lankton received the Worcester Telegram and Gazette's Cultural Enrichment Award on 2/28/12 for his commitment to the arts.
