Directions from Harvard Square
From Harvard Square to the Harvard University Herbaria building: walk through Johnson Gate (as you do so you will be facing the statue of the seated John Harvard directly across the quad) and take the walkway that goes off diagonally to your left. Follow this walkway to another gate at the north end of the yard. As you go through the gate you will be facing the Science Center; Memorial Hall (a large, church-like structure) will be to your right. Beyond Memorial Hall is a fairly new, tall, white building, the tallest building around and clearly visible from many parts of Cambridge (and Boston). This building is at the corner of Divinity Avenue and Kirkland Street. The Harvard University Herbaria building is at the very end of Divinity Avenue. Time from subway stop: ca. 5-10 minutes.
