Mammoths and Mastodons | U.S. Space & Rocket Center

May, 26 – September 3, 2012 This exhibit is included in general admission Click here for Tickets Journey back through the Ice Age to view some of Earth’s largest and most awe-inspiring mammals in The Field Museum exhibition Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age. Monumental video installations, hands-on interactive displays, life-sized models, fossil tusks and skulls—and even touchable teeth— bring these ancient giants back to life. You’ll discover the difference between mammoths—furry beasts weighing as much as eight tons, bearing tusks up to 16 feet long—and mastodons, their shorter, stockier cousins. Masters of the Ice Age, mammoths and mastodons survived for millions of years, living in climates ranging from the temperate woodlands of North America and Europe to the wind-swept steppes of Asia.
