Did You Know?

The Hyde Park Mastodon

The Museum of the Earth is home to the remains of several mastodons. One of the most complete specimens ever found is on public display here — the Hyde Park Mastodon. A centerpiece of the Museum, the story of this mastodon’s discovery has even been the subject of a Discovery Channel documentary.

During the preparation of the skeleton for final display, scientific-quality casts of the bones were made to allow other scientists the chance to study it. Full reproductions of the skeleton can even be purchased by museums who aren't fortunate enough to have their own!

More facts about the Hyde Park Mastodon can be found here.

Darwin Days 2019

Darwin Days 2019

Living Fossils

An annual commemoration of the birthday and ideas of Charles Darwin (1809-1882)

February 9 - 16, 2019

Come experience the wild world of evolution through our annual celebration of the life and ideas of Charles Darwin. "Living Fossils" is the theme of the Paleontological Research Institution’s 2019 Darwin Days celebration, taking place during the week of February 9-16, 2019. How have some living things survived unchanged for millions of years? Discover the fascinating stories behind the plants and animals that time forgot.

Co-sponsored with Cornell University, Darwin Days features a week of events including a screening of “Jurassic Park”, several talks on Darwin and evolution, a panel discussion, a Darwin trivia night, and the Museum of the Earth’s annual Darwin Family Day.

Celebrate Charles Darwin’s 210th birthday with us, during our 14th annual Ithaca Darwin Days!
