Yale Peabody Museum’s 7th annual end-of-summer free admission day

 NEW HAVEN - The Yale Peabody Museum’s seventh annual end-of-summer free admission day, is set for Saturday, August 27, from 10 a.m to 4 p.m.  Aug. 27, according to a release.
"Local high school students in the Peabody’s Sci.CORPS Museum Interpreter Program will man Sci.CARTS in galleries throughout the Museum," the release noted. "They will demonstrate objects from the collections and encourage visitors to touch real fossils and artifacts and engage in exercises offered at the following Sci.CARTS: Geologic Time, Ancient Egypt, Connecticut Birds, Mammals, Watershed, Rocks and Minerals, and North American Dioramas."

"A division of the Museum’s after-school EVOLUTIONS program, Sci.CORPS helps students master the science and suggested teaching technique for each cart. Students receive badges for each Sci.CART they learn to master." 
Further, docents will lead tours of the Peabody’s 150th anniversary exhibition, "Treasures of the Peabody," which "tells the story of the Museum from the founding of Yale in 1701 and the early evolution of science in America to the expeditions and research occurring today," the release said.

"On view are rarely-seen objects from across the Museum’s scientific divisions including Pavlov’s drool collector, Buffalo Bill’s rifle, Yale’s first microscope, the first meteorite to fall in the New World, and the skeleton of famed circus gorilla Gargantua the Great. Also Hesperornis and Ichthyornis, the 80-million-year-old toothed birds from Kansas that were early evidence of the dinosaur-bird connection; Deinonychus, the raptor discovered in 1964 by Peabody paleontologist John Ostrom that reestablished the evolutionary link between birds and dinosaurs; and the 'Jurassic Park' Velociraptor inspired by Deinonychus."
All Peabody galleries will be open including the Great Hall of Dinosaurs featuring the 150-million-year-old skeletons of Brontosaurus and Stegosaurus, the release said.
Visitors will receive a raffle ticket upon entering that makes them eligible for prize drawings throughout the day. A craft activity will be offered for younger children.
Free parking is available in the Peabody lot and adjacent Yale lots. The entrance is one block north of the Museum at the intersection of Whitney and Humphrey Streets. The museum is located at 170 Whitney Ave, New Haven, at the corner of Whitney and Sachem Streets.
