> DESCRIPTION

Millions of years ago, colossal mammals roamed Europe, Asia and North America. From the gigantic mammoth to the massive mastodon, these creatures have captured the world’s fascination. Meet “Lyuba,” the best-preserved baby mammoth in the world, and discover all that we’ve learned from her. Journey back to the Ice Age through monumental video installations, roam among saber-toothed cats and giant bears, and wonder over some of the oldest human artifacts in existence. Hands-on exciting interactive displays reveal the difference between a mammoth and a mastodon, offer what may have caused their extinction, and show how today’s scientists excavate, analyze, and learn more about these amazing creatures. Explore the lives of these mysterious titans of the Ice Age, only at The Field Museum.
