A mammoth event

A mammoth event

The Australian Museum in Sydney is bringing mammoths to life this November in Mammoths - Giants of the Ice Age.

Presented in partnership with Destination NSW, 17 November 2017 will see the exhibition feature Lyuba, (pronounced Lee-OO-bah) – a 40,000-year-old baby woolly mammoth, discovered in 2007 by a Siberian herder and his two sons.

This will be the first time the near fully intact baby mammoth has been on display in the southern hemisphere.

Developed by the internationally renowned Field Museum in Chicago, the exhibition also includes a collection of fossils, casts and cave drawings showing evidence of how early humans hunted and honoured these massive creatures.
