In a beautifully restored gallery, see an astonishing array of over 600 objects from Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. Together they trace the early history of the museum’s collections and the birth of American anthropology. Enter the world of a late 19th-century museum and be transported into the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition where Frederic Putnam, the second Peabody Museum director, and the Peabody presented their anthropological vision and collections to a wider world.
