Get ready to face some of the largest mammals to have walked the Earth. Huge fossils, skeletons and life-size models will tower over you in a mighty clash of tusks and trunks as you experience the drama of their Ice Age world.
The exhibition will take you on a journey starting when mammoths roamed the land through to the latest research into extinction and ways we can protect their precious modern relative, the elephant.
Meet some of the best-known species, including the infamous woolly mammoth, the spiral-tusked Columbian mammoth and their island-dwelling relative, the dwarf mammoth.
And discover prehistoric giants such as the mastodon, the fearsome sabre-tooth cat and the giant cave bear. Find out how they evolved and explore their behaviour and environment.
Imagine life as a mammoth. Test your skill at tusk jousting, trunk swinging and feel the weight of food mammoths consumed every day - the equivalent of 230 bags of sugar.
Professor Adrian Lister, mammoths expert at the Museum introduces the exhibition:
'These amazing creatures were not only giants of the Ice Age, but the science behind their incredible lives is still relevant to the natural world today. The exhibition promises a rare glimpse into the Ice Age world of mammoths and their relatives through life-sized models, original skeletons and the latest science.'
More details coming soon.
This exhibition was created by The Field Museum, Chicago.
