    When you’re on the Connecticut shoreline and it rains, head here! Hands-on kid activities, exhibits, and the awesome giant squid that suspended in the main hall make for a really memorable time.

    Fantastic museum and fun for a quick trip! Has dinosaurs! Definitely check out if you are a Yale student (it's free) and consider even if you aren’t!

    Founded in 1866, Peabody is one of the oldest natural history museums in the world and its Great Hall of Dinosaurs is a must-see.

    the Peabody Museum was inspired by the first paleontologist in North America... it hosts the dinosaurs made from bones he discovered!
