Field Trips

All weekday field trip dates through June 14 are now full.

Join us for educational field trips at the newly renovated Yale Peabody Museum, beginning in May 2024.

Admission to the Peabody Museum is free, but school and group visits require reservations. Submit your reservation request at least 3 weeks before the date of your visit. Follow the link below to request a visit.

The date and time of your visit must be confirmed by the Museum’s Education Office. Please bring a copy of your confirmation letter on the day of your visit. Unregistered groups may not be accommodated and could be asked to return at another time. The Peabody is wheelchair accessible. Most visitors take 2 to 3 hours to tour the Museum.

The renovated Museum includes the following to accommodate group visits:

  •     Bus pull-in and drop-off space on Sachem Street.  Buses cannot park here.
  •     A new group entrance on the Sachem Street side of the Museum.
  •     Dedicated classrooms for programs on the lower level of the Museum.
  •     A lunchroom which can be reserved for your group.
  •     Storage space for your gear and lunches.

Students must be accompanied by adult chaperones with a maximum of 8 students to each chaperone.  Please note that as we complete the renovation, some exhibits may not be fully open during your visit.
