Exhibit/Program
Ice Age (May – September 2023)
This exhibit transports visitors back in time to the last Ice Age (approx. 20,000 years ago), to learn about the large mammals (i.e., megafauna) that roamed North America.  The exhibit centers around real fossils and flawless casts of ten different megafauna species, in addition to having engaging information panels and 2D and 3D artist’s renderings of the extinct animals.   Visitors have the opportunity to touch real fossils and the casts.
