Our docent was amazing, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He made a lot of connections for my students that aligned perfectly with what we are learning in the classroom.

I have been coming to the museum for this program for 11 years. The presenter was excellent: clear, articulate, easy to understand, knowledgeable and related well to my 1st year college class.

We like to schedule visits to the Peabody because they are always interesting, informative presentations given by docents who are always passionate about their subject matter.

Been visiting with my students for 21 yrs. Peabody always does an excellent job teaching our students. I'm always amazed at how the lessons flow so smoothly with all the excitement around.
