The Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History in New Haven, Connecticut celebrated its 150th anniversary in the Fall 2016. CMS member Johan Maertens will show and tell about the museum’s history and collections and then show us details of his recent visit to the mineral displays. The mineral hall has undergone many changes; it is now known as the David Friend Mineral Hall in honor of the benefactor who has inspired a grand revision to what had been a rather stodgy presentation of the mineral kingdom. Not so anymore!
Guests are most welcome at our meetings. This program will be great for folks of every age.
