Yale Peabody Museum Gallery Talks

First and Third Thursdays, January through May

at 4:00 pm


Join us this winter and spring on the first and third Thursday afternoons of the month for a special series of gallery talks! Yale Peabody Museum collections managers and graduate students will feature one or two 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.
