About

From towering totem poles and large Maya sculptures to precious artifacts of the ancient world, the Peabody Museum at Harvard exhibits six continents of world culture just a short walk from Harvard Square. The Peabody is known for its extensive Native American and Mesoamerican collections, including life-size casts of Maya monuments, as well as its changing exhibitions such as Wiyohpiyata: Lakota Images of the Contested West featuring 19th-century warrior art, and Digging Veritas, which explores the archaeology of colonial Harvard. The Peabody Museum is one of the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture.

Muchos Mexicos: Crossroads of the Americas explores Mexico’s rich history as a site of human innovation, creativity, and cultural diversity. Featuring Mexican objects from the Peabody Museum collections, this bilingual exhibit tells the story of Mexico as a multicultural and geographic crossroads—one where the exchange of resources, products, and ideas among Indigenous peoples throughout the Americas before the Spanish invasion, and then with cultures around the globe—have all created a vibrant nation.
