Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age

© Field Museum GN91320_104d

 

From 1.8 million to 10,000 years ago, as Earth experienced a great ice age, the colossal mammoth and mastodon roamed the northern hemisphere.

What was life like for these animals, whose remains invite so much modern fascination and speculation?

In this exciting traveling exhibition, explore the world of mammoths and mastodons through fossils, artifacts, engaging interactives, immersive media, and the story of the most complete and best preserved baby mammoth ever found, Lyuba. From the Pleistocene to the present, explore their habitats, their neighbors, and their human hunters. You will investigate current theories about their DNA and extinction, and journey with scientists who continue to study their living cousins—elephants.

This exhibition was created by the Field Museum, Chicago.
