Main Exhibit Halls
Built in 1972 to create exhibit space for the expanding Museum, the Blue Wing encloses three levels of galleries wrapped around a towering central hall. A 45-foot-long T. rex lurks in one corner; optical illusions adorn a wall; an Apollo module floats overhead. A revolving array of exhibit components creates an unusual and dynamic atmosphere for your guests, while soaring ceilings and expansive spaces provide a touch of grandeur.
Stand in just the right spot in the Museum's back lobby, and you can place one foot in Cambridge and the other in Boston. Extending eastward from the glass-enclosed central lobby, the Green Wing is located beneath the Museum's central tower and houses a number of interactive areas, including exhibits featuring New England birds, scientific classification, and natural history topics.
