Start your exhibition journey in an ancient time when mammoths roamed the land. Find out about the latest research into extinction and the conservation of their precious cousin, the elephant.
Taking photographs: Please don’t take pictures of Lyuba, she is too fragile. The Columbian mammoth and giant short-faced bear make great alternatives.
Mammoths great and small
Explore some of the best-known species, including the infamous woolly mammoth, the spiral-tusked Columbian mammoth and their island-dwelling relative, the dwarf mammoth. Meet baby Lyuba, the most complete mammoth ever found.
Discover prehistoric giants such as the mastodon, the fearsome sabre-tooth cat and the giant short-faced bear. Find out about their behaviour and environment and how they evolved.
Imagine life as a mammoth. Test your skill at tusk jousting, trunk swinging and feel the weight of food these beasts consumed every day - equivalent to 230 bags of sugar.
'Rare glimpse of original skeletons'
Museum mammoth expert Professor Adrian Lister, 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.'
This exhibition was created by The Field Museum, Chicago.
