Cultural Program Musts:
If your student has booked a Cultural Program, you and your guest select 3 museum vists per week for each week of cultural activities from the list below. (Your guest may have pre-selected his or her preferred sites to visit). For additional weeks on the cultural program, work with your guest to find other places of interest in Boston/Cambridge or your local area.
Cultural Program Listed Activities/Museums:
Book a “Hahvahd Tour“, 70 mins. $10 per person.
Led by students – add a nice tip. (unofficialtours.com)
Museum of Natural History
(free on Sunday Mornings 9-noon). Follow with brunch and shopping in Harvard Square?)
Your choice of any other Harvard Museum:
The Cultural program also mentions “any local museum/activitiy” you and your guest wish to include. Other Boston/Cambridge activities to consider (by no means an exhaustive list – if you have found another favorite, let us know!)
List Visual Arts Center at MIT
The State House in Boston has a free tour.
This is a good tour and worth doing – it works well with a stroll of the Commons and Public Garden and perhaps a snack from the many street vendors in the area.
