Harvard Art Museums

A short walk from Harvard Square, there’s many Harvard museums which are top quality, even an entire exhibit dedicated to gemstones and cacao in the Harvard Museum of Natural History. There are also glass flowers at this museum. Or if fine art is more your style, check out the Arthur M Sackler museum which has an impressive atrium or the Peabody Museum of Archaeology which we really “dig.”

Longfellow House

Brattle Street in Harvard Square in general is a very cool street to roam around looking at the architecture, but we are partial to the tour of this national historic site which was once Washington’s headquarters. You can try our Harvard Square Chocolate Tour to acquaint yourself with the neighborhood and cobblestone streets, and don’t forget to take a photo of yourself with Harvard Square butterfly wings.
