Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology


Temporarily Closed

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.
