Museum admission requiredWe welcome back Atka, an Arctic wolf who lives at the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, New York. Founded in 1999, the Center promotes the conservation of this often misunderstood species by teaching about wolves, their relationship to the environment, and our role in their protection. Join us for these very special presentations. Space is limited.
The mission of the Peabody Museum is to serve Yale University by advancing our understanding of earth’s history through geological, biological, and anthropological research, and by communicating the results of this research to the widest possible audience through publication, exhibition, and educational programs.
Fundamental to this mission is stewardship of the Museum’s rich collections, which provide a remarkable record of the history of the earth, its life, and its cultures. Conservation, augmentation and use of these collections become increasingly urgent as modern threats to the diversity of life and culture continue to intensify.
The Yale Peabody Museum is wheelchair accessible.
