Celebrate the longest day of the year and mark the beginning of summer with the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture! While we can’t welcome you to our museums in person just yet, we invite you to join us for a special livestream to learn about the scientific and cultural significance of the summer solstice and to enjoy an uplifting community event.

Attendees will participate in a virtual field trip to the Stonehenge UNESCO World Heritage Site in England and to Cuttyhunk, Massachusetts to explore the world of oysters. They will also learn about the importance of solstices to mark time throughout history from the Stone Age to the Rocket Age.

Throughout the day we will host musical performances presented by the Pan-Latin ensemble Sol y CantoFabio Pirozzolo and Shelley Otis, and members of Kuumunity Collaborations. Plus, enjoy a sense of peace and wellness with a short restorative-yoga session.
