  • Spent over five hours here. Stunning collection and a real treasure trove of ethnology
  • I had a great time! I loved the newer exhibits, the Harvard Indian School exhibit was my favorite, I loved everything about its design, particularly the layered drawers showing the levels of excavation. I also appreciated the explicit mention of NAGPRA and modern Native Americans as living people.
  • Interesting collection of weapons throughout various cultures & time periods. Mesoamerica exhibit pretty cool (i.e. Ancient Mayan altar) but your ticket is really only worth the price combined with Natural History Museum.
  • Really beautiful exhibits. I've seen a few natural science museums, but this was very impressive.
  • One of my fondest memories as a child was seeing the cool stuff at the museum!!! Now, when I go, it's just breathtaking, the history, the time.. so many beautiful artifacts, and how time has made them so elegantly simple.
