Join us for a weekend-long welcome to these impressive Ice Age ambassadors. Learn about the creation of the epic sculptures, delve into the museum’s current mammoth research, and enter your suggestions for what to name the new arrivals!

  • 20 percent discounts on all family museum memberships
  • 20 percent member discounts in the museum store
  • The first 50 visitors each day will receive a commemorative mammoth gift!
