Museum Temporarily Closed to the Public
As Harvard University works to welcome a limited number of students and staff back to campus, Harvard Museums of Science & Culture continues to monitor the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and consider enhanced protocols for a safe return for onsite visitors. While we remain temporarily closed, we encourage you to enjoy the museum at home with new and frequently refreshed digital content via the Peabody Museum’s Online Resources and HMSC Connects!. Stay tuned for a full schedule of virtual fall programs, including classes, tours, lectures, and events.
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.
