Frozen Reign: A State of Change at the Indiana State Museum

650 W. Washington St.
Indianapolis, IN 46204


Feel the tooth of a saber tooth cat, explore a subglacial ice tunnel, and wind your way through replicas of caves that house the bones of many now-extinct animals that previously roamed Indiana, including jaguars, dire wolves and more. Plus, see a parade of the Ice Age giants, with skeletons of mammoths, mastodons and other larger animals. Learn about environmental change and how it continues to affect us today, and about the ongoing work that museum staff do out in the field. Frozen Reign covers the timeframe from about 5 million years ago up to about 12,000 years ago.
