As part of our new virtual initiative, HMSC Connects! presents "Extraordinary Things," featuring intriguing objects from all four of our museums seen from multiple, sometimes surprising perspectives. https://bit.ly/HMSCExtraordinaryThings
Each week, you’ll see a collection of objects with a different theme, starting with this week's (public health-inspired) "Home Sweet Home.” From the Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments, we start things off with a bang via Thunder Houses! https://bit.ly/HMSCconnectsExtraordinaryThingsThunderHouses.
