Harvard has a rich history of scholarly contributions to the various natural, physical, and social sciences.

'Time, Life, & Matter...' features many important instruments that helped make those contributions possible.

Five themes serve as the framework for exploring interconnected ideas across disciplinary and chronological lines:

▪️Colonial Science
▪️Natural Philosophy
▪️Astronomerís Time
▪️Mind and Body
▪️Physical Matters

Highlights of the exhibit include a multitude of stories told in part by such items as a geometric sector designed by Galileo, electrical experimentation apparatus purchased on Harvard's behalf by Benjamin Franklin, a suite of clocks illustrating the development of modern synchronized time-keeping, medical apparatus designed, in part, by Charles Lindbergh (yes, that Charles Lindbergh), and the artifacts of top-secret research conducted by Harvard scientists during World War II.
