Ice Age Mammals

The age of dinosaurs is over and the cold, frigid climate of the Ice Age took over THEMUSEUM in 2016.

Ice Age Mammals provided visitors with the opportunity to experience what Canada’s Yukon territory was like 20,000 years ago during the last peak of the Ice Age, bringing them face-to-face with a life-size mastodon skeleton, and fossils of mammoths, short-faced bears, camels and more!

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

The Ice Age Mammals exhibition was 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.

Why open THEMUSEUM newsletters?

"Just scanning the themes here, I think you and the programming team should be very proud of the relevance of your institution to so many of the important conversations of our time. Please keep doing what you’re doing!"
