Quick Stops

Let a Harvard student help you focus on one special object in the galleries. Each Quick Stop lasts about 15 minutes and offers replica objects to handle while engaging in lively conversation about a few interesting artifacts. Tell us what the exhibits show you! Topics change daily.  Themes may address Princess Leia and Hopi pots; cloves and gongs; trays of eyes; or monuments to the average human.

These activities* are offered twice a week during free entry times for Massachusetts residents: Wednesday afternoons at 3:30 pm and Sunday mornings at 11:30 am. No reservation is required. Meet on the fourth floor of the Peabody Museum near the sledge at the exhibition entrance, and listen for the student announcement.

*Quick Stops are available during the fall and spring semesters, except during holidays, Wintersession, and Recess breaks. See the Harvard academic calendar for dates.
