Heroes of the Ice Age

June 29, 9 am - 8 pm

The coolest event of the summer is back at the Mountain America Museum of Ancient Life! At Heroes of the Ice Age, you’ll travel back in time to the Pleistocene Epoch, when much of the Earth was covered in glaciers. Woolly mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, and other giants roamed the planet alongside humans. Learn all about this epic epoch through fun and educational programs happening all day throughout the museum.
