Forthcoming Events

The Whipple Museum is now closed until early 2019 for essential work on our historic building. Although our building will be closed, we will be bringing the History of Science to a variety of locations for events across Cambridge.

Festival of Ideas

Below are events involving the Whipple Museum during the Festival of Ideas [].

Living in the Arctic Family Day
