The Yale Peabody Museum was founded in 1866 with a gift from philanthropist George Peabody, at the urging of his nephew, Yale’s O.C. Marsh, the first professor of paleontology in North America and the Museum’s first director. Marsh built many of the Peabody’s great collections, and today you can see some of his most famous finds — the dinosaurs he named Triceratops, Stegosaurus and “Brontosaurus” — in the Museum’s Great Hall.

Along with more than 11 million specimens and objects in anthropology, botany, zoology, paleontology, entomology, ornithology, and historical scienfiic instruments in its collections, the Yale Peabody Museum is also home to Rudolph F. Zallinger’s murals The Age of Reptiles and The Age of Mammals.
