ArtsThursdays: Light Up the Museums!

Join Harvard Museums of Science & Culture for a free night at two museums on Thursday, March 30. Enjoy handcrafted mocktails by CraftHouse Bartending and desserts in the galleries. Take some snaps in a photo booth, or lounge around in light-up chairs while participating in museum-themed crafts. Food and drinks are complimentary, but supplies are limited so come early and stay late!

Visit Harvard Museum of Natural History's new exhibits "Swimming with Sharks" and "In Search of Thoreau’s Flowers," as well as the world-famous "Glass Flowers." Find birthstones in the newly renovated mineral gallery, see large tigers and view dinosaur fossils in the paleontology gallery. At Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, explore towering Maya sculptures in the Latin American galleries and discover the early days of American anthropology as shown at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. See nineteenth-century Plains Indian warrior art in an exhibit co-curated by Hunkpapa Lakota artist and tribal educator Butch Thunder Hawk. ArtsThursdays is a university-wide initiative supported by Harvard University Committee on the Arts (HUCA). This program is part of HMSC’s 10-year anniversary celebration.
