The Mammoth Site Exhibits



The fossil bones of Columbian and woolly mammoths are found scattered throughout the sinkhole. The bones are displayed as they were discovered, in the now dry pond sediments for an "in-situ" exhibit.

Hands-on activities make for a fun time and great photo opportunities!

Walkways allow the visitor a close-up view of the fossils. To date, 55 mammoths have been identified, along with the remains of a giant short-faced bear, camel, llama, prairie dog, wolf, fish, and numerous invertebrates.


The Mammoth Site's Ice Age Exhibit Hall features replica skeletons of the American lion, giant short-faced bear, and pygmy mammoth. A full-sized mammoth model and walk-in mammoth bone hut are the most popular exhibits.
