Last Specimen Leaving

The last specimen has left the Peabody galleries. The de-installation process began on December 7, 2019, with the removal of our Brontosaurus skull and culminated today with the fossil slab from David Friend Hall.

It’s been a long 18 months and thousands of objects are now safely stored for the duration of construction. Congratulations and thank you to the tireless staff members who worked throughout the pandemic to keep the renovation on track.
