The Ice Age Imperials exhibition provides a rare opportunity for visitors to "touch" the Ice Age. Interacting with real fossils from ancient animals like the saber-toothed cat, wooly mammoth, giant sloth, dire wolf, giant beaver and teeth from a huge Ice Age bear make the Ice Age come alive for visitors like never before.
Lessons of the Ice Age abound. How did glaciers form and move? During the Ice Age, was there ice where you live now? Discover the answers within graphic displays about glacial size and ice depth. Try assembling the 3-D Mastodon puzzle, or immerse yourself in the History of Earth timeline where you can touch a variety of fossils from more than 500 million years ago to less than one million years ago.
