Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) May 31, 2011
The Boston Marriott Cambridge Hotel celebrates a precious neighborhood jewel—the Harvard Museum of Natural History—with two museum packages in 2011. Families may discover the “Hidden Gems of Cambridge” package, including deluxe hotel accommodations (with king or two double beds), and four passes to the Museum. While couples can enjoy the “Glass Flowers” package, including deluxe hotel accommodations, two passes to the Harvard Museum of Natural History, and a coffee table book The Glass Flowers at Harvard.
These Cambridge Hotel deals were created just in time for the premiere on May 21 of a new permanent exhibit at the Harvard Museum of Natural History. The New England Forest exhibit educates museum-goers on the local flora and fauna that populate the Northeast. From the lowliest mosses to the fiercest predators, the exhibit explains how each part of the ecosystem is linked together and how New England forests have changed over the years.
The Harvard Museum of Natural History’s historic displays also include extensive collections of minerals, meteorites, fossils, taxidermy and jarred specimens. In addition, the Museum presents a world famous collection of 3,000 “Glass Flowers," representing 847 plant species, painstakingly and accurately crafted by father and son glassmakers Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka from Hosterwitz, Germany. New and changing exhibitions highlight current science and address contemporary issues, including climate change and new insights in evolutionary biology. The Harvard Museum of Natural History is located at 26 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA. For information, call 617.495.3045 or visit http://www.hmnh.harvard.edu.
