This Week @ MHS

Looking for some intellectual engagement as a reprieve from the holiday madness? Look no further than the MHS this week.

On Tuesday, 13 December at 5:15 PM the final installment of 2011 for the Boston Environmental History Seminar brings Harvard University's Daniel Barber to the MHS to present his research Phase-Change: Maria Telkes after the Dover Sun House. Catherine Zipf, Salve Regina University, will provide the comment.

On Wednesday, 14 December at 11:00 AM come visit for a 1-hour gallery talk focused on our exhibition The Purchase by Blood. If you cannot make the gallery talk, remember that all MHS gallery spaces are free and open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  

And on Saturday, 17 December the 90-minute tour The History and Collections of the MHS departs the front lobby at 10:00 AM.

Also note that the MHS library will be closing at 3:45 PM on Thursday, 15 December.
