From the 150-million-year-old Brontosaurus skeleton in the Great Hall to the award-winning, life-sized sculpture of Torosaurus outside, dinosaurs and the Yale Peabody Museum go hand in hand. Join us for our annual celebration of paleontology and dinosaurs. There will be plenty of hands-on activities for the whole family, including our famous fossil dig and an extensive fossil touch table. You'll also have the chance to meet paleontology graduate students and professionals and learn about their interesting research. Don’t miss it!
