Ice Age Safari

How about a journey through time? We're offering an ice-age safari. Find out what it was like to go on a safari in the era between 35,000 and 15,000 years ago. Look into the eyes of the giants of the last ice age, including mammoths, cave lions and giant deer. Find out how and what people hunted and cooked or how they dressed. The exhibition "Ice Age Safari" conveys interesting and exciting information about the world of the last Ice Age in Europe. For the first time, the latest research results and bone finds from the ice-age animal world of the Upper Rhine region are presented here. Over 100 artefacts, including life-size animal reconstructions, skeletons, herbal compounds and hands-on stations make this exhibition a special experience for everyone.
