Area Dining

There is no cafeteria or lunchroom at the Peabody. Information on local eating places is available through the map below or at the Admission Desk in the lobby. Visitors are welcome to picnic on the lawn.  Limited space for indoor lunch can sometimes be made available in our mammal hall in cases of inclement weather only and are available on a first come, first served basis on the day of your visit.  No advance reservations for lunch space will be taken.  All arrangements will be made at the front desk upon check in.
