Imagine visiting an Ice Age museum filled with huge fossils as they were uncovered! Imagine walking the edges of a 26,000 year old sinkhole where mammoths, bears, lions and wolves once walked. See exhibits such as a full-sized Columbian mammoth replica, a walk-in bone shelter and skeletons of now extinct carnivores - the giant short-faced bear and the American lion. A kid's activity area offers young scientists hands-on learning while one floor below the laboratory windows provide a "behind the scenes" glimpse of the scientific work conducted on-site.
