All the World Is Here

Please join us at a special members-only open house event to celebrate the Peabody Museum's 150th Anniversary and the new exhibition, All the World Is Here: Harvard’s Peabody Museum and the Invention of American Anthropology.

Take advantage of the late evening hours and mingle with fellow members, enjoy refreshments, and talk with museum staff about the new exhibition, the Peabody Museum's history, and more.

  • Explore the new exhibition located in the beautifully restored 4th floor gallery featuring an astonishing array of over 600 objects from the museum's collections – many on display for the very first time.
  • Be immersed in the fascinating story of a Victorian-era museum’s rise alongside the then-emerging field of American anthropology.
  • Enter the world of a late 19th-century museum and be transported into the midst of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition where the museum's second director, Frederic W. Putnam and the Peabody presented their anthropological vision and collections to a wider world.
