Exhibition Details

Exhibition Name:

Ice Age Imperials

Description: Ice Age Imperials, an attendance record-setting exhibit, tells the story of the Ice Age through compelling hands-on displays and interactive experiences. The exhibit focuses on iconic animals that roamed North America during the Pleistocene Period, including giant ground sloth, giant beaver, dire wolf, sabertooth cat, mammoth, mastodon, Ice Age bear, and more. Answers to key questions about the Ice Age are presented. When and where was it? How big were the glaciers and how did they move? What creatures lived then that are extinct now? Two large interactive dioramas, the centerpieces of Ice Age Imperials, feature a full size mother sabertooth cat with two cubs, and a full size woodland musk ox. The dioramas present intriguing stories that illustrate the lives and times of early human hunters and Ice Age megafauna. For young visitors, Ice Age Imperials offers several very special experiences. Children can learn about the anatomy of Ice Age creatures by assembling a large 3-D mastodon and sabertooth cat puzzles, and they can explore two fun and educational fossil dig boxes. Other engaging and popular activities for young visitors include mammoth and sabertooth cat rubbing plates. Lessons from the Ice Age abound in a detailed 40-page Educator's Guide. Educators have authentic Ice Age fossils and casts to use in group settings. Antiquities Company team will assemble the Ice Age Imperials exhibit at your site with participation from 2 host museum staff. Please see the Ice Age Imperials Photo Gallery at
