Fall Semester 2018 Gallery Talks

Once a month, Thursdays at 4:00 pm


Join us this fall for a special series of gallery talks! Yale Peabody Museum curators, collections managers and special guests will feature a few remarkable objects from our collections in a 20-minute presentation, followed by Q&A. As we continue to celebrate our 150th anniversary, find out how these objects fit into the long history of the Peabody Museum as a source of knowledge and understanding about the Earth and its cultures, and why our resident experts are so excited to talk about them! Refreshments will be served; ask at the front desk for specific location.
