To mark the 150th anniversary of its founding, the Peabody Museum is featuring a major new exhibition: All the World Is Here: Harvard’s Peabody Museum and the Invention of American Anthropology. Unveiled within a beautifully restored fourth-floor gallery, the exhibition features over 600 objects, many on display for the first time, including items such as Admiral Robert Peary’s dog sled, exotic materials collected by eighteenth-century Boston ship captains, and stunning archaeological works of art excavated from Ohio’s Turner Mounds.
