Unwrapping a Treasure

February 21, 2012

Workers have begun removing the protective wrap from the Museum of Natural History building on Berkeley Street between Newbury and Boylston. Some of the original details of this 1862 design have been lost over the years, but the current work restores the building’s glory. Imagine this block when the museum and a very similar structure that housed MIT, stood side-by-side.

  • This was a great restoration project done at the Museum of Natural History. To make all the hard work last, BirdMaster bird control specialists (shown in the picture above) installed invisible nettings on the facade to stop pest birds from infesting this building in the future. The same type of netting has also been previously installed in landmarks such as the Capitol Building, Supreme Court, and the State House. http://www.birdmaster.com
