About Peabody Museum of Natural History

Kids can discover the world at the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale, with ten scientific collections that tell the story of our planet, as well as its life, culture and history!

Now THAT is an impressive learning experience for the kids!

The adventure starts on the first floor, where you can see objects documenting early humans, including fossils and skulls, as well as the Age of Mammals exhibit where you can see all the great creatures that walked the earth long before us, including the woolly mammoths!

Of course, a highlight is the Great Hall with extensive fossils and skeletons, including the Brontosaurus - the Peabody Museum's largest mounted skeleton!

The second floor is home to the Torosaurus statue, and the Discovery Room which is perfect for kids aged 5 to 12 and their families to explore the collections! Here, touchable and hands-on activities fill the room, plus live animals too!

Finally, the third floor brings to life daily life in Ancient Egypt, plus wildlife from North America, and a host of minerals and rocks that make up our planet (and universe!)

There are so many wonderful things to see at the Peabody Museum of Natural History, that it really allows kids to learn about our planet, it's history, and see how amazing it is!
