Info

Ongoing exhibit. Museum Hours: Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, noon  to 5 p.m. The Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History is having a gold rush. This very special collection showcases 23 stunning pieces of California gold, including unusually large examples as well as smaller ones featuring extremely rare crystallographic forms. The exhibit also features a collection of historical instruments and artifacts related to gold mining in California, including a mining pan filled with gold dust, a balance for weighing specimens, an instrument for measuring the velocity of air in mines to ensure proper ventilation, a field chemical lab called a "blowpipe kit," and a silver candlestick decorated with mining-related symbols that miners used for illumination while underground.
