Mammoths Are Coming

On December 5, Museum of the World Ocean and I. Shemanovsky Yamal-Nenets Area Museum and Exhibition Complex invite you to travel to the past and see how the world looked like when it was inhabited by giants.
Visitors can see a unique exhibit with its own story in Packgaus exhibition hall. It is well-known worldwide and now it is here – almost completely preserved baby mammoth in Museum of the World Ocean. It was found by Yuri Hoodi on the the Yamal Peninsula. The baby was named Lyuba. It was one month old when it died and has been buried in ice for 42 000 years. Nobody knows how the world used to look like in the ice age and every find of this period is so called “window to the past” that gives an opportunity to scientists to reconstruct life on the planet that existed thousands years ago. That is the idea of the exhibition project – to see mammoth steppe (steppe-tundra) inhabited by ancient animals with Lyuba’s, baby mammoth’s, eyes who was a witness of this epoch.
The virtual baby mammoth will introduce you to its family (mammoths, their way of life, anatomy, physiology, behavior, etc.); its neighbours (animals of the Pleistocene: a musk-ox, a wolverene, a wolf, a lemming, a woolly rhinoceros and a bison), their anatomy and behavior; as well with the environment of mammoth fauna. Such a dialogue between the baby mammoth and a visitor can demonstrate how people contacted with the world from the Stone Age till the present days.
Young visitors can play Around the World with Lyuba game. You can also join a unique project The World with Baby Mammoth’s Eyes. The exhibition is displayed in Packgaus exhibition hall on December 5, 2014, - March 29, 2015.
