We will thank our 63,140 visitors!

Welcome to the Ice Age! Come join us for an exciting adventure. Travel more than 12.500 years back in time to the last Ice Age in our region. Get a close look at life-like Dima, the stunning replica of a Russian Mammuth calf. Marvel at the abundance and diversity of wild life in the cold climate. See how humans, the Cro-Magnons, made a living for themselves. View their reconstructed shelter, and examine their useful tools and deadly weapons. In a reconstructed cave, discover fascinating and detailed cave art of the Cro-Magnons. Feel the excitement of a palaeontologist and dig for fossils in a huge sandbox.
