Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age
October 21, 2012 - January 13, 2013
Travel back to a time when humans shared the stage with woolly giants! Examine full-scale replicas of massive Ice Age mammals, including Lyuba, a 40,000-year-old baby mammoth discovered by a Siberian reindeer herder in 2007. The exhibit also features some of the oldest art in existence, huge skulls and tusks, weird and wonderful mammoth relatives, and mastodon bones collected by William Clark (of Lewis and Clark fame) for President Thomas Jefferson's own collection.
