See exhibits such as a full-sized Columbian mammoth replica, a walk-in bone shelter and skeletons of now extinct carnivores - the giant short-faced bear and the American lion. A kid's activity area offers young scientists hands-on learning while one floor below the laboratory windows provide a "behind the scenes" glimpse of the scientific work conducted on-site. The Mammoth Site is open year around with guided tours. Self-guided tours are available in Dutch, English, French, German, Russian, Italian and Japanese. Call us for group rates.
