Ice Age Mammals

On display until October 2, 2016

The age of dinosaurs is over and the cold, frigid climate of the Ice Age is moving in.

Come explore what Canada’s Yukon territory was like 20,000 years ago during the last peak of the ice age in our newest exhibition: Ice Age Mammals. You will come face to face with a life-size mastodon skeleton, and fossils of mammoths, short-faced bears, camels and more! Aspiring paleontologists will also be able to interact with touchable specimens and new interactive displays.

Ice Age Mammals explores topics and information regarding climate change, the earth’s environmental timeline, animal extinction, and the environmental impact that humans create. The exhibition is also complemented with murals by Canadian palaeoartist George "Rinaldino" Teichmann.

Ice Age Mammals is produced by the Canadian Museum of Nature, in partnership with the Montreal Science Centre, the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology and the Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre.    

The presentation of this travelling exhibition was supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage.
