We, at the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture, are committed to building a diverse and inclusive environment. We stand with those working for reforms dedicated to confronting and eradicating systemic racism. We acknowledge a history of exclusionary and unethical museum practices that have contributed to social and racial injustices, in addition to the need to evaluate current practices and commit to the intentional and continuous work that supports all people in feeling included, valued and welcomed at our museums.

June 23 Update: The Harvard Museums of Science & Culture will remain closed for in-person visitation through Summer 2021.
