A natural history museum at Yale University, advancing our understanding of earth’s history through geological, biological and anthropological research, and by communicating the results of this research to the widest possible audience through publication, exhibition and educational programs. From mummies and mastodons to dinosaurs and diamonds, there's something fascinating around every corner of the Peabody. Note: A major renovation is closing the museum to the public for a time starting July 2020. Please check their web site for updates.

Yale Peabody Museum Mission

Fundamental to our mission is stewardship of the Museum’s rich collections, which provide a remarkable record of the history of the earth, its life, and its cultures. Conservation, augmentation and use of these collections become increasingly urgent as modern threats to the diversity of life and culture continue to intensify.
