Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History
One of the most memorable places to visit in New Haven is the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History.  Filled with notable geological, biological and anthropological collections and its renowned Great Hall of Dinosaurs where among the many displays stands the fossil skeleton of a 65-foot Brontosaurus that roamed the earth some 150 million years ago and is the highlight of everyone's visit to the museum.
Yale Peabody Museum of Natural HistoryThe Geat Hall is also home to the Pulitzer award winning 110 foot mural, a fresco secco painting by Rudolph F. Zallinger.  It took Zallinger 3 1/2 years to paint the mural which was finished in 1947.

You can explore thw wonders of anthropology in the Hall of Native Americans, Fossil Fragments and Daily Life In Ancient Egypt.  You'll discover the world of natural history in the Hall of Mammalian Evolution, the Hall of Connecticut Birds, the Hall of Minerals, Earth and Space and through the Petrified Wood-Rainbows in Stone and eleven Habitat Dinorama exhibits.

Children can experience nature and view live creature exhibits in The Discovery Room.  It is a wonderful chance for children to explore nature first hand with touchable specimens and hands-on activities.

That looks like a wonderful museum.  We have the one in Los Angeles, and they just opened a new Dinosaur Hall.  It was amazing too.

Ralph - While there is so much to see at the Peabody Museum, the Great Hall of Dinosaurs is my favorite.

Jeff - I think I spent over 2 hours there and could've stayed much longer.  I hadn't been to the Peabody Museum since I was around 9 years old and found it to be just as fun then as it was the day I went.

We have future plans for a NE vacation.  This is going on the "list".  My husband would love it.  He's a history fanatic and I'm sure could spend days there.
