With the announcement of a transformative gift in 2018, the Yale Peabody Museum begins its next 150 years with a redefining renovation that will greatly expand its research capabilities, education and collection centers, and its exhibition galleries.
In 2005 the Peabody unveiled its 21-foot life-size bronze sculpture of Torosaurus—one of O.C. Marsh’s famed dinosaur discoveries. The 7,350-pound sculpture sits on a 13-foot, 70-ton base of Stony Creek granite. Overseeing the Museum’s Cretaceous Garden—dedicated in 2011—the grand horned dinosaur welcomes all visitors to the Museum.
