MAMMOTHS AT THE MUSEUM
“Millions of years ago, giants roamed the earth…”
We’ve always been fascinated by what remains of these past goliaths that once roamed our world. Dinosaurs continue to inspire awe and wonder today, often in films like the Jurassic Park franchise. But in addition to these massive reptiles there have been gargantuan mammals like the Woolly Mammoth – and until the end of the year, you can check out authentic mammoths in person at the Royal BC Museum.
Mammoths! Giants of the Ice Age is an interactive exhibit that happens to also feature Lyuba, a 40,000-year-old baby woolly mammoth discovered in Siberia in 2007. Lyuba is the world’s most completely-preserved mammoth and is a huge opportunity for visitors to see one of these legendary creatures in person.
For more information on Lyuba and the exhibit, head over to the Royal BC Museum website here.
If you’ve never seen a mammoth in person before, now is your chance, and if you happen to catch an IMAX movie or check out one of the incredible exhibits on our coastal first nations, well, it will be a day well spent.
