The Peabody Museum is on Harvards Campus and connected to the Harvard Museum of Natural History. Unfortunately, the Peabodys exhibits have become tired. A lot of the items have been removed or loaned, which definitely takes away from the collection. Not the best museum for kids, especially with the HMNH right around the corner. Its such a shame because it is still an impressive collection. I cant think of a more extensive collection of Native and Latin American history in the Boston area. Hopefully, Harvard will invest some money and time into renovations.
I had a great time! I loved the newer exhibits, the Harvard Indian School exhibit was my favorite, I loved everything about its design, particularly the layered drawers showing the levels of excavation. I also appreciated the explicit mention of NAGPRA and modern Native Americans as living people.
One of my fondest memories as a child was seeing the cool stuff at the museum!!! Now, when I go, its just breathtaking, the history, the time.. so many beautiful artifacts, and how time has made them so elegantly simple.
Very interesting exhibits and history - ranges from Native American artifacts to an extensive taxidermy collection. Be sure to explore the entire museum, there is definitely something for everyone here!
Great examples of native American and Latin American culture and history. The dual membership into the natural history museum accessible from the third floor makes for an irresistible package.
Founded in 1866 by George Peabody, making it one of the oldest museums devoted to anthropology, with one of the most comprehensive collections in the world. Pro-Tip: Free on Sunday Mornings!

A diamond in the rough of Boston museums. Extensive collection of ethnographic arts. Some are the last of their kind from a forgotten culture.
I fell in love, not just with Harvard, but as an anthropologist. I cant express how well put together it was. I was very happy with my visit.
Really beautiful exhibits. Ive seen a few natural science museums, but this was very impressive.
Spent over five hours here. Stunning collection and a real treasure trove of ethnology
This is a nice little museum that also connects to the Harvard Natural History museum.
If youre interested in Native Americans, this is a good museum for you.
