The Museum of Comparative Zoology (MCZ) is located on Harvard University’s grounds and is a part of the Harvard Museum of Natural History, which has two other museums as well. This museum is also known by the name ‘The Louis Agassiz Museum of Comparative Zoology’. The museum contains over 21 million specimens collected over years, and also the works by researchers.
The jewels in the crown of MCZ are Captain Cook’s mamo, a sand dollar fossil found by Charles Darwin himself, and many exhibits like whale and dodo’s skeletons and the largest turtle shell. What’s more, a ticket to MCZ gives access to the adjacent Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. Founded in 1859, the Museum of Comparative Zoology also has a women’s laboratory. However, that is not open to the public.
