Photos and Videos by Hispanic Teens to be Featured

In September, 2020, Harvard Museums of Science and Culture—a consortium that includes the Harvard Museum of Natural History and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology—will launch Hear Me Out, a project to expand Hispanic engagement by collaborating with youth. The consortium will partner with two youth-serving agencies in Chelsea and Somerville, neighboring cities that have large Hispanic populations, and the Somerville Media Center.

Museum Closed to the Public

We continue to monitor the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and prioritize the safety of our visitors, staff, students, and volunteers. In the interest of reducing the number of people on campus and slowing the opportunity for transmission, the university museums are closing to the public, at the end of business on Thursday, March 12 until further notice.

Over the next few weeks we will be assessing the situation and reviewing options for when we will be able to re-open to the public.
