West Campus Educational Programs

The Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History is looking forward to hosting school and group programs throughout the year at the Yale Peabody Museum Community Education Center @ West Campus.  Located just off I-95's Exit 41 (Marsh Hill Road) in Orange, Connecticut, this West Campus facility will offer a mix of many of the same science, social studies and art programs that you know from the Peabody Museum, but with more opportunities for hands-on, interactive, and outdoor experiences.


Our West Campus location features 3000 square feet of classroom, presentation and laboratory space.  In addition, many programs make use of the Oyster River Outdoor Classroom, a forested wetland corridor on West Campus that provides opportunities for habitat studies, scientific investigations, and seasonal nature walks.  Registration for West Campus programs will open in January of 2020 with classes beginning in October of 2020.  Look for a teacher open house in the spring of 2020.


The Yale Peabody Museum Community Education Center will also host some of the Natural Science Illustration Program classes while the Museum is under renovation.
