Founded in 1866, the Peabody Museum is the oldest museum in this hemisphere devoted entirely to the disciplines of archaeology and ethnology. It houses treasures of prehistoric and historic cultures from all over the world. Exhibits and educational programs are coordinated through the Museum of Cultural and Natural History to help visitors gain a sense of human history, cultural diversity, ingenuity, and artistry. The Peabody has long been considered one of the finest repositories of scholarly materials and has a dual purpose of providing both in-depth sources for scholars and public education.
