 Spring Semester 2018 | Behind-the-Scenes Collections Tours

(during the first and third Tuesday of each month)


From Anthropology to Zoology, the 13 million objects and specimens in the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History’s collections represent a world-class record of the history of Earth and its cultures. Yet less than a tenth of one percent is on display in the public galleries! In continuing celebration of their 150th anniversary, the Yale Peabody Museum will be offering free behind-the-scenes tours on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. In this tour led by Yale students, you’ll visit two different curatorial divisions, learn how the collections are stored and organized, and glimpse some hidden treasures that rarely see the light of day.


Tours are by registration ONLY & limited to 24 people.


Children must be 12 years of age or older to participate.
