A Night at the Peabody Museum

Saturday, May 19, 2018 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm

Come join us for a fun, family-oriented evening — with a touch of gold!


Gaze on glittering specimens of radiating golden leaves and marvel at the 23 stunning pieces in California Gold. Discover the science of gold mining through historical instruments and artifacts. Become the biggest prospector in town and make your mark in history — just don’t go chasing after fool’s gold in our Fossil Dig site!


Plus enjoy an exclusive scavenger hunt and live animal demonstrations throughout the night.


Tickets are $18 for Yale Peabody Museum members, $20 for non-members. Advance purchase is required.


Online Registration is NOW CLOSED! Tickets will be sold at the door from 6pm-8pm
