Description

Who better to tell you about life at Harvard than the students themselves? Join your enthusiastic guide and get the lowdown on this famous institution's history. This smartphone ticket also gets you access to a world of natural wonders at the Museum of Natural History.

As the oldest higher education institution in the United States, the prestigious Harvard University was once home to eight former US presidents!

See where they crammed for tests in the Widener Library, and marvel at the 16th century's equivalent to Google. It's the second biggest library in the country and spans 10 floors, four of which are underground.

Learn what goes on in Harvard Yard, the home of freshman dorms and department buildings, and then use your ticket to get into the Museum of Natural History.

See the internationally acclaimed Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants, otherwise known as the Glass Flowers. This unique collection of over 4,000 models represents over 830 plant species and was created by father and son team Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka, talented 19th-century glass artisans.
