Main exhibition - From the Ice Age to the Present

During the last 2.5 million years Earth has experienced over 40 ice ages interrupted by interglacial periods. We are currently going through an interglacial period. Our main exhibition "From the Ice Age to the Present" takes you from the previous interglacial period to today. You will observe Norwegian animals in lifelike surroundings, and minerals and rocks associated with the different periods. This exhibition is unfortunately only presented in Norwegian.
