We weren't able to spent much time, 40 minutes, in the museum but it was well worth it. The exhibits are full of objects from around the world, from natives from North America to the south Pacific to Asia. Enjoyed our time there.

A nice peaceful location away from the traffic of Cambridge. There are a lot of interesting exhibits and the bonus is that entrance to the museum is free. It is situated close to the Sedgwick Museum of Geology.

The MAA is a magnificent museum and a must see when in Cambridge. There are so many artifacts from all corners of the world it has to be seen to be believed. So much history and you can spend all day in there.
