Among the holdings in Yale Peabody Museum’s Division of Historical Scientific Instruments are models from various disciplines, including physics, mathematics, engineering and geology. Models are either ideal or actual representations of theory, and so are particularly important in teaching and experimental design.
The Yale Peabody Museum’s collections are available to legitimate researchers for scholarly use. Loans are issued to responsible individuals at established institutions. Loans and access to the collection can be arranged through the Collections Manager.
