The Ice Age has arrived; come explore the Ice Age exhibits at the Bollinger County Museum of Natural History. The replica skull of Dee, the largest mounted Columbian mammoth in North America, is back. Joining Dee is a replica of Dima, a mummified baby woolly mammoth, found frozen in the tundra in Siberia. Dima is one of the few complete mummified baby mammoth specimens ever found.
In addition to the mammoths, see a huge Latifrons bison skull replica; giant ground sloth skull replica; saber tooth tiger skull replica; and a dire wolf skull replica. Two displays have original fossils in our exhibits of Ice Age Man in North America: North Sea Fossils, Ice Age Plants from Missouri; and The Ice Age and its Megafauna.
Joining our Ice Age Exhibit is a Mammoth Hut constructed out of replica Mammoth tusks and covered with animal hides. Mammoth bone huts were used in areas where limestone caves were not available. Many of these types of structures have been found in Russia and western Europe. This structure is not entirely completed yet but will give you a good look at how Palaeolithic hunter gathers constructed their homes in this way when they lived in areas that had little or no timber and no natural caves. Regular admission is Adults $2 and 18 years and under $1.
