Mammoths and Mastadons…Oh My!

Special exhibits come and go from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Most are really impressive…all of them are educational.2013-02-18 13.55.42

In Mammoths & Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age, you get to meet saber-tooth cats and giant bears literally face to face.  Life-size models, fossil tusks and skulls, touchable teeth, spear points, cave paintings, interactive displays, and monumental video installations bring the Ice Age back to life.

The kids especially enjoyed the video installations – they were educational, easy to follow and fun to watch!
