New exhibition experience: Ongoing and open Monday-Sunday, 9:00am-5:00pm
The Harvard Museum of Natural History has just opened an important new exhibit on climate change that draws on the latest science about our warming climate, the global and local consequences, and what we can do to prepare for its effects. This multimedia exhibit includes engaging video and storm simulations, a “check your knowledge” interactive station, and a dramatic inside look at a high-tech Argo float from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution—one of 4,000 deployed worldwide to monitor global oceans and climate. Developed in collaboration with the Harvard University Center for the Environment, Climate Change offers visitors the hard facts about one of the world’s greatest challenges.
This exhibit was made possible with generous financial support from Clark Bernard MBA ’68 and Susana Bernard, together with support from Jonathan Goldstein MBA ’90 and Kaia, Annika, and Skylar Goldstein in honor of Professor James J. McCarthy and Sue McCarthy.

Extreme drought and record heat have laid the groundwork for hugely destructive and deadly wildfires, including the now infamous “Camp Fire,” seen here a few hours after it ignited on November 8, 2018.
