Fitting with the prehistoric theme that the blog has taken for the past 24 hours I thought that I would also let you know about the “Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age” exhibit currently at the Museum of Science in Boston. This is a temporary exhibit showing through January 13th. This exhibit includes full-scale replicas of ice age mammals and a 40,000-year-old baby mammoth that was discovered in 2007! The pictures on the Museum of Science’s website of this exhibit look very cool!
You could make a full prehistoric day out of the Museum of Science by also visiting Triceratops Cliff, a 65-million-year old Triceratops fossil, and the “Dinosaurs: Modeling the Mesozoic” exhibit on permanent display at the Museum of Science. All of the above mentioned exhibits are included in your Exhibits Halls admission. Exhibits Halls admission prices are as follows: $22 for ages 12+ and $19 for ages 3-11. (Exhibits Halls admission is free if you are a ASTC/ACM Reciprocal Member.)
And finally, you could finish off your fun family day by watching the movie Ice Age!
Note: Remember to check with your local library to see if they have a museum pass program. Many libraries can provide museum and science center passes at a discounted rate. You may have to call the library a few days prior to the date you’d like to visit the museum to reserve the passes with the library.
