Don’t tell anyone, but Massachusetts is kind of a big nerd. We simply love science and nature. You could say it’s in our nature, with scenic roads like the lovely Mohawk Trail, 1500 miles of postcard pretty coastline, and some of America’s most brilliant fall foliage. The four Harvard Museums of Science & Culture have a new podcast, a virtual tour, online exhibitions, and closer looks at museum collections grouped by themes like “World in Color.”We could spend hours at the Museum of Science, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and wish we could live at the Franklin Park Zoo or maybe the Butterfly Place, surrounded by colorful creatures. And don’t even get us started on the New England Aquarium, fully renovated in 2013.
