Welcome Teachers!

The Yale Peabody Museum offers a wide range of opportunities and resources for teachers.  Tour the museum with your class, download curriculum units, activity sheets and scavenger hunts, or reserve one of our standards based science, anthropology or art classes.  Through our nationally recognized workshops and institutes, we also offer teachers professional development opportunities ranging from one day to week-long programs.  These are offered most summers.  Please see the menu on the left to navigate, or contact us at peabody.education@yale.edu if you don’t find what you are looking for.


Field Trip Essentials

Here's everything you need to schedule your Peabody Museum field trip:



Visit the museum this spring to see Dinosaurs Take Flight: The Art of Archaeopteryx.  This exhibit presents an intersection of art and science and offers opportunities for your students to investigate evolutionary trends, adaptation, fossilization, and many forms of art including natural science illustration and sculpture.  Learn how ongoing research at Yale is adding to the story of flight and feathered dinosaurs.  Dinosaurs Take Flight is only here through August, so make your reservations soon.


And the excitement continues about the recent and dramatic expansion of the Museum's mineral exhibit with the October opening of David Friend Hall.  A website devoted to the hall is under development and will be available soon.
