The Museum of Science, located in Cambridge, is a great way to spend an afternoon. Whether your a tourist or a local, the Museum of Science has a little something for everyone. Here are a few exhibits on display:
Animals Without Passports: "Animals Without Passports is a small exhibit that examines this annual journey from the Atlantic Ocean to warmer tropical waters. You’ll learn about the hazards that humpbacks face as they cross ocean borders, explore issues impacting the marine ecosystem, and consider our own role in protecting these amazing animals."
Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed: "Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed, the largest exhibition of its kind in the United States, invites you to uncover the rise and eventual decline of this majestic civilization — including its social, natural, and spiritual realms — through never-before-seen artifacts, hands-on activities, multimedia components, and re-created environments."
Butterfly Garden: "Walk among the free-flying residents of this warm conservatory filled with exotic plants. Overlooking the Charles River, this tropical oasis offers a wonderful opportunity to get close to a variety of living butterflies from New England and across the globe."
