Examine authentic, sharp-tipped spear points and hunting instruments made by Ice Age hunters as well as some of the oldest known art: delicate carvings and Paleolithic jewelry. A host of immersive videos, giant tusks and massive animal models, touchable displays and fun hands-on experiences make this the area’s most outstanding fall-winter exhibition. This exhibition was created by The Field Museum, Chicago.
Due to the expense of bringing this outstanding exhibition to Liberty Science Center, there is an extra fee of $5.25 for adults and $3.50 for children ages 2 -12 / seniors 62+. Infants under 2 are free. School and group rates are also available.
