Jellyfish are fascinating creatures - they look so simple and yet have roamed earth's seas for at least 500 million years. 

Some are tiny, while others - such as the lion's mane jellyfish - can grow up to 35 meters long. Some present a danger to humans, while others can glide by us harmlessly. 

Guests at Boston hotels will have a unique opportunity to find out more about them at a special lecture taking place at Harvard Museum of Natural History on May 25th. 

Presented by biologist and jellyfish expert Lisa-Ann Gershwin, Stung! On Jellyfish Blooms and the Future of the Ocean will educate attendees about how changes in our marine ecosystem are presenting advantages for these strange animals. 

This talk is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. EDT and standard museum admission charges apply. 

The museum is in Cambridge, but guests at the Millennium Bostonian Hotel Boston can get there very easily in a taxi, which will take just 15 minutes.
