Harvard Museum of Natural History

From the weekend trip Skip the Freedom Trail in Boston

Sure, it's worth investigating Harvard Yard, but this curious nearby institution is actually more memorable than the redstone campus with which it's associated. Past its Mongolian tigers and looming dinosaur skeletons is the stunning Ware Collection of Glass Flowers (pictured) that showcases thousands of impeccably designed glass flowers and plants that are still used today as botany teaching models. www.hmnh.harvard.edu
