The Boston Society of Natural History, a renowned American museum of science and technology, was established in 1830 in Boston, Massachusetts
, as the Museum of Science in Boston, MA. The museum was later moved to Science Park on the Charles River in 1948. Mostly devoted to science, the museum's regular exhibitions include rocks and minerals, plants, mounted animals, models of the human body, human spaceflight capsules, galaxies, computers, and electricity. There are nearly 700 exhibits to explore, as well as live presentations and shows, including Omni and 4D films.
The Museum was formed in 1830 by a group of men who wish to share their scientific interests, and was designed by William G. Preston, a Harvard University alumnus and American architect. The Boston Society of Natural History's hard work and significant contributions to scientific endeavors, notably in the subject of geology, paid off throughout the ages, attracting many tourists and members from all over the world both physically and online. The kid's rooms and library were added to the museum around 1900. In 1939, the Museum was renamed the Museum of Science under the guidance of Henry Bradford Washburn, Jr., a well-known American mountaineer.
