Last chance to see “Mammoths and Mastodons” exhibit
Just three more weeks to experience this Ice Age sensation
“Mammoths and Mastodons” is about to go extinct! There are just three more weeks to see the colossal “Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age” exhibition, on view at the Anchorage Museum until Oct. 9.
On Sept. 17-18 during Love Your Library weekend, show your library card at the museum front desk and receive free general admission with the purchase of a “Mammoths and Mastodons” ticket – that’s half off an adult ticket.
This exhibition, developed by The Field Museum in Chicago, brings mammoths and mastodons to life by exploring their interactions with one another and with ancient humans. The exhibition features life-size replicas of Ice Age creatures, as well as skeletons and hands-on activities. Several fossils on display were discovered in Alaska, including tusks from some of the last mammoths on Earth.
Regular-priced tickets to “Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age” are $24 adult, $21 senior/student/military, $17 ages 3 to 12 and free ages 2 and younger. Prices include museum general admission. Purchase tickets at the museum front counter or online at www.anchoragemuseum.org.
