American Philosophical Society Museum

In 1801, Charles Willson Peale excavated a mastodon skeleton in upstate New York. Afterwards, he made this painting that shows how he did it. Eventually Peale displayed the skeleton in his Philadelphia Museum. In this garden, you see an artist's interpretation of how Peale would have put the skeleton together.To learn more about Peale and his curious family, visit the APS Museum across the street. It's in the same building where Peale had his Philadelphia Museum.
