Museum of Science  

The Museum of scientific (MoS) is a science museum and indoor zoo at Science Park, a parcel of land spanning the Charles River in Boston, Massachusetts. Along with over 700 interactive exhibits, the museum offers daily live events around the facility, including programs at the Charles Hayden Planetarium and the Mugar Omni Theater, New England’s only domed IMAX screen. The museum is also an Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) accredited member and is home to over 100 species, many of which have been rescued and rehabilitated.


In 1830, the Boston Society of Natural History was created by a group of men who wanted to share their scientific interests. On February 9, 1830, seven founding members attended: Walter Channing, Benjamin D. Greene, George Hayward, John Ware, Edward Brooks, Amos Binney, and George B. Emerson. In the nineteenth century, it was more popularly known as the Boston Museum of Natural History, and this name frequently appears in the literature. After numerous temporary sites, the society built a structure in the city’s Back Bay district in 1862 and named it the New England Museum of Natural History.  The museum was built next to the original Rogers Building at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and William G. Preston designed both. The old MIT structure was razed in 1939, but the Natural History Museum structure remains a home furnishing showcase today.

Past Exhibits

  • A small Wilson cloud chamber was featured in the main entrance hall in the 1950s. Visitors could get within inches of radioactive material to observe the vapor trails of particles generated by it.
  • From the early 1950s to 1979, the first Fresnel lens powered by electricity in the United States (taken from the Navesink lighthouse) was on exhibit.
  • In 1988, the museum hosted an exhibit concentrating on Ramses II’s life and times, which featured more than 70 antiquities on loan from the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. The exhibit’s showpiece, arguably, was a 40-foot-tall facsimile of an Egyptian temple housing a 3,000-year-old, 57-ton granite statue of Ramses. The show aired from May 7 through August 30, 1988.
