Out and About: Connecticut's Peabody Museum

Out and About: Connecticut's Peabody Museum

There's quite a bit packed into this smallish (for a museum) space! First and foremost at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History . . . the dinos. Inside the Great Hall are skeletons of dinosaurs like the Apatosaurus and Stegosaurus, alongside Rudolph Zallinger's famous mural, The Age of Reptiles. This Pulitzer prize–winning creation took nearly five years to complete and is 110 ft. long! Also on display is his equally captivating Age of Mammals mural – I could stand back and gaze at both for hours at a time. The Age of Reptiles and the Age of Mammals celebrate their sixtieth and fortieth anniversaries this year respectively so stop by and take a peek. This is Connecticut's best museum in my opinion and a great place to not get overwhelmed . . . but not be underwhelmed either!

Dinosaur skeletons completely overwhelm me. I have no idea why little kids are so obsessed with them - aren't they scary? The museum looks cool though.
