Come face to face with some of the largest mammals to have walked the Earth. Huge fossils, skeletons and life-sized models will tower over you in a mighty clash of tusks and trunks. Meet the infamous woolly mammoth, the spiral-tusked Columbian mammoth and their island-dwelling relative, the dwarf mammoth. Explore the behaviour, environment and evolution of prehistoric creatures such as the fearsome sabre-tooth cat and the giant cave bear. Imagine life as a mammoth by feeling the huge weight of food they would have consumed every day and trying tusk jousting.
