Virtual Tours

The Peabody renovation is in full swing! Due to COVID-19, we had to close the galleries a little earlier than expected. Before we de-install all the objects and specimens, we thought it might be fun to take everyone on a few virtual tours via Zoom.
Beginning Friday, August 21, at 11:00 am, we’ll be visiting a number of our galleries for guided tours with Peabody experts. We hope you can join us!
