Museum Temporarily Closed to the Public
The Harvard Museums of Science & Culture—including the Peabody Museum—will remain closed for in-person visitation through Summer 2021. We are working with Harvard University on a phased reopening plan that prioritizes the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and the general public. We look forward to sharing more details as these plans evolve. As we prepare to reopen our doors, we encourage you to enjoy the museum at home with new digital content, including virtual tours, podcasts, and coloring pages on HMSC Connects! Also, sign up for our enews to receive our latest updates. We look forward to welcoming you back to the museums soon. In the meantime, have a safe summer!
The Peabody Museum is located at 11 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge, Massachusetts, on the Harvard University campus. It is connected to the Harvard Museum of Natural History, and one ticket admits a visitor to both museums.
In addition to exhibits, the Museum offers teacher workshops, interactive programs for children, classes and special events for families, and public lectures.
See the menu for more options.
The collections and associated documentation are available for teaching, research, publication, exhibition, replication of indigenous techniques, and artistic endeavors. The nature and conditions of use must be consistent with the Museum's commitment to the care of its collections. Allow at least three weeks' advance notice to schedule appointments.
