Now that the warmer months have finally arrived, it’s the perfect time to pack a picnic and visit the Harvard Art Museums’ Adolphus Busch Hall terrace and garden. This unique space is tucked away behind a gate on Cabot Way, around the corner from Adolphus Busch Hall’s main entrance at 29 Kirkland Street in Cambridge, and just two blocks from where the new Harvard Art Museums is rising. A recent photo journal assembled by the Harvard Gazette showcases the courtyard’s quiet splendor.

The terrace and garden are open during the warmer months Monday through Friday from 10am to 5pm. So come, bring a friend, and relax amid red-tailed hawks and a bronze cast of the Brunswick Lion (Braunschweiger Löwe)!
