Suitcase Exhibition

Close.

Ice Age is a suitcase-sized exhibition brimming with the latest information on climate change.

You’ll see evidence from the past showing that the Earth goes through warm and cold periods. Touch a dinosaur toe-bone, a chunk of 45 million-year-old wood, and a fossilized leaf-impression from warmer times. Marvel at specimens from the ice age including a piece of mammoth tusk and a giant-beaver jawbone. Solve jigsaw puzzles, play a sound-matching game, an ad lib word game and more on the computer. Hear some surprising Stories from the Field, narrated by museum researchers. A stack of colourful quiz cards full of fun facts about ice age mammals and more is also included.

When did the last ice age end? It hasn't yet. It isn't always cold during an ice age. Between the periods of glaciation there are mild periods called interglacials. Today, we are still in the latest ice age, in an interglacial that began about 10 000 years ago.
