Work Duty

Each term approximately 30-35 students complete their work duty at the Peabody Museum. The students are given numerous responsibilities such as entering the McNeish Archives into our database, cleaning artifacts and helping museum staff with various curatorial tasks.

However, it’s not all work at the Peabody Museum! Students are given hands-on instruction in flint knapping, use of the atlatl, the history of Halloween and Dia de Los Muertos, among other fascinating experiences.
