Peabody Museum of Natural History
Venture into Yale's exciting natural history museum,this is the only museum in Connecticut with fossil dinosaur material on permanent display. The Pulitzer Award winning "The Age of Reptiles" mural (slightly outdated, but nevertheless a beautiful work of art in itself) depicts 300 million years of prehistory. Explore the cultures and peoples of the world through exhibits on Ancient Egypt, Mesoamerica, the Andes and the Great Plains, just to mention a few. It is best to visit during non-school hours.
This is a nice little natural history museum. It takes about half a day to go through. Sometimes it gets nice, world class exhibitions through because of the Yale affiliation - such as the Machu Pichu exhibit, which was way more favorable towards Yale's involvement in the plundering of Machu Pichu than any other account I've seen and had an overt PR goal but was good anyways because of the quality of the artifacts. There's a nice interactive part for the kids. Still, it's more of a kids museum than an adult museum, aside from special exhibits. The fossil collections are not outstanding, for instance, and are comparable to other natural history museums.
the Peabody is one of the best natural history museums in the world. You can literally stay all day in it and enjoy yourself. Peobody is also great for families and provides designated areas to entertain children.
