Look Listen Touch

Starting February School Vacation Week, the Museum will offer Look Listen Touch, a guide for young children to explore the Museum's New England Forests, in the Zofnass Family Gallery. Pick-up the exploration flyer at the front desk and earn how to help your child experience nature in a multi-sensory way. Sit on the bench beneath the wolf; shut your eyes and listen. Do you hear the sounds of a bird singing, a woodpecker tapping, a frog croaking? How many different colors can you see in the feathers of one bird? Do animal and insect babies look like their parents?

Paid parking available at the nearby 52 Oxford Street garage (see website for details). A 7-8 minute walk through historic Harvard Yard from the Harvard Square red line T stop.
