The Harvard Museum of Natural History was established in 1998 as the public face of three research museums: the Museum of Comparative Zoology, the Harvard University Herbaria, and the Mineralogical & Geological Museum. Presenting these incomparable collections and the research of scientists across the University, the Harvard Museum of Natural History’s mission is to enhance public understanding and appreciation of the natural world and the human place in it, sparking curiosity and a spirit of discovery in people of all ages.
Today’s museum reflects both the history of its affiliate museums and an evolution toward a twenty-first-century institution that presents cutting-edge research, addresses contemporary issues, and offers creative educational experience in a unique, intimate setting.
