Conservation Clues demonstrates how visitors can help protect museum artifacts.

A Gallery Program at the Peabody Museum

Grades K-8, 20 minutes

A wonderful complement to your self-guided exploration.

Program is free with group admission; please request this program when scheduling your visit.

Why can’t we touch the artifacts in the museum?

Why can’t we eat and drink in the museum?

Why are some of the galleries so dark?

Every visitor to the Peabody Museum can be a conservator by helping protect the artifacts in the museum from damage. Groups of chaperones and students are invited to explore conservation science and the behind-the-scenes role of conservators. Handle some of the tools conservators use and learn to spot the “conservation clues” throughout the museum.
