Teaching Displays

Class taught at the Peabody

Harvard University students and faculty examine a teaching display on the Peabody Museum's third floor.

Teaching displays—short-term exhibits that feature collections chosen around a theme or topic related to a course—can be installed on the third-floor teaching gallery of the Museum. They usually work well for large classes or sections.

Existing teaching displays include

  • Native American Literacy
  • Osteometrics
  • Potlatch

The Museum staff works with faculty to design teaching displays that best meet the needs of specific courses. In several cases, we have worked with students, either individually or as a class, to give them the opportunity to curate a display.

Procedures & Contacts

Teaching displays require one-month's advance notice.
