      Glass Flowers at Harvard Museum of Natural History

      The Glass Flowers gallery is closed for extensive model and case restoration, space renovation, and the installation of state-of-the-art lighting and display features. The Glass Flowers will reopen to the public on Saturday, May 21, 2016. One of the museum's most famous treasures is the internationally acclaimed Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants, the "Glass Flowers." This unique collection of over 4,000 models--some 3,000 on display--was created by the glass artisans, Leopold Blaschka and his son, Rudolf. The commission began in 1886, continued for five decades, and represents more than 830 plant species.
