The Neville Public Museum

Ice Age Imperials

Exhibit Opens: 27-May-2016
Exhibit Ends: 30-Oct-2016

Ice Age Imperials is a traveling museum exhibit that tells the story of the Ice Age. Its exciting interactive displays make the drama of the majestic animals that dominated the age accessible to all.

Using  two full-scale dioramas, a series of interactive displays and wall-mounted educational components, Ice Age Imperials prompt visitors to wonder: When and where was it? What was life like here during the Ice Age? How do today's animals compare to their extinct Ice Age relatives?

The Ice Age Imperials exhibit provides a rare opportunity for visitors to 'Touch the Ice Age'. Interacting with real fossils from ancient animals like the sabertooth cat, woolly mammoth, giant sloth, dire wolf, giant beaver, and teeth from a huge Ice Age bear will make the Ice Age come alive to visitors like never before.

Lessons of the Ice Age abound. How did glaciers form and 'move'? During the Ice Age, was there ice where you live now? Discover the answers within graphic displays about glacial size and ice depth. Try assembling the 3-D Mastodon puzzle, or immerse yourself in the History of Earth timeline where you can touch a wide variety of fossils from more than 500 million years ago to less than 1 million years ago.
