Went around the campus with a friend who is an alumni. On display is the first ever computer in USA. Another highlight is the statue of John Harvard in front of the big library. A number of impressive looking buildings span the campus.
Signed up for the 60min tour for prospective students. Our female tour guide (cant remember her name but she was from Cape Coral FL and on diving team) - was phenomenal!!! Answered questions, shared personal experiences and was kind enough to repeat questions for those...More

Any fan of Legally Blonde has to go to Harvard. It’s an easy subway ride to see the premier institution of higher education. A summer student institute was happening when we arrived and my daughter got the thrill of a lifetime when they asked if...More
Layla was our tour guide and she was great! She was very knowledgeable and always willing to answer your questions. It’s great that students can tell about their own experiences. My daughter loved this tour maybe we will be back in a few years! Kudos...More

There are several museums on the grounds of Harvard University that are worth visiting!!! There is one museum just outside of MIT that is also neat. We stayed halfway between both universities so we could play on both and do campus tours for our son. Very easy to get an Uber. And there is a bus line that is a straight shot between MIT & Harvard.
