See large tigers, view dinosaur fossils in the paleontology gallery and examine birthstones in the newly renovated mineral gallery. At Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, explore towering Maya sculptures in the Latin American galleries. See the new exhibit, "Shehuo: Community Fire," featuring contemporary photographs of Shehuo, the rural Chinese festival transformed by economic forces.
