About Planet Ice: Mysteries of the Ice Ages

Journey across more than 80,000 years of Earth's history! Take a journey back in time and explore the power of ice and cold in shaping the world we live in today. Produced by the Canadian Museum of Nature, this exhibition features more than 120 real specimens, amazing models and artifacts. Through engaging exhibits, multimedia and some "magical" moments, explore some of these mysteries and reflect upon how humans are part of the problem, and part of the solution.

Meet animals adapted for cold—some long extinct, others still alive today. Discover the lands lost long ago under the world's oceans. We are still living in an ice age, but the planet is changing. What would be our future without ice?

  • Amazing animals – Witness the rise of the mastodon and other imposing animals such as the smilodon, and giant 6 foot beaver.
  • Magical experiences – Don’t miss games and interactives, including a stunning installation by Montreal’s Moment Factory.
  • Discover our future – See why ice matters as the climate changes, and discover how you can help.
