TIME: 05:00 pm - 09:00 pm
Come for a free arts and science night at the Harvard Museum of Natural History and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology! This month, they are partnering with Harvard’s Brain Science Initiative to explore the senses—from understanding our ability to perceive and process visual, smell, touch, sound and taste stimuli to exploring how our brain “knows” when we feel hungry, thirsty or excited. How does it all work? Meet Harvard scientists and students who are figuring it all out!
Arrive with a date, come with friends or make new friends while learning about the brain and strolling through the galleries. Participate in activities, enter raffles to win museum gifts and memberships.
Handcrafted cocktails and mocktails by CraftHouse Bartending are available for purchase. Valid government ID is required to consume alcoholic beverages.
Free and open to the public. Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.
Let them know you are coming! RSVPs are encouraged, but walk-in visitors are always welcome.
Enter at the Harvard Museum of Natural History (26 Oxford Street, Cambridge).
Presented by the Harvard Museum of Natural History, the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture, in collaboration with the Harvard Brain Science Initiative, and the Cambridge Science Festival.
ArtsThursdays is a university-wide initiative supported by Harvard University Committee on the Arts (HUCA).
