Each year the Yale Peabody Museum hosts a broad assortment of captivating public lectures about natural history. These include talks in the John H. Ostrom Program Series, an annual volunteer-run effort with a specific theme that ties the series together. Other presentations address new areas of research, or highlight our temporary and permanent exhibitions. All lectures that take place after 5:00 pm are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
