Our Peabody Corporate Partners program offers the business community an exceptional opportunity to build a special relationship with the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, a quality educational, family-oriented community resource enjoyed by at least four generations of Connecticut residents and tourists from around the world.


Our Partners show exceptional corporate citizenship and civic pride, while gaining valuable exposure to select market audiences, including Connecticut families, educators, business and civic leaders, tourists and global Internet audiences.


Through membership, companies invest in:

  • The Museum’s capacity to create and host nationally recognized traveling exhibits in New Haven, from our own highly successful Machu Picchu exhibition to In Search of Giant Squid, a collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution.
  • Vital educational programs, such as a skills-based after school program for New Haven teens and free admission to students for several Connecticut school districts, including New Haven and Bridgeport.
  • Innovative events, including our Martin Luther King, Jr Day festival and Fiesta Latina!

Partners enjoy knowing their support helps bring high quality educational programs to our schoolchildren, provides new opportunities for cultural enrichment, and bolsters our economy by attracting thousands of tourists each year to New Haven.


As an expression of appreciation, the Museum opens its doors to our Partners, giving them many benefits, including access to a truly unique business entertainment venue with eleven remarkable exhibit halls to share with employees, executives, and clients.


With an annual attendance of over 150,000 visitors and prime advertising space on our banner and kiosk along Whitney Avenue in front of the Museum (viewed by 8,500 travelers every day), sponsoring an event, program or exhibition at the Yale Peabody Museum is a low-cost, high-visibility marketing opportunity for New Haven, Connecticut, and New England corporations. Furthermore, sponsorship at the Peabody Museum is an opportunity to have a real, lasting impact on the lives of children and their families throughout our diverse region.
