Taking Care of the Mastodon

by Creation Museum on February 22, 2010

Have you seen the mastodon in the Main Hall of the Creation Museum?  This casting of a mastodon skeleton from Newark, Ohio has been in the Main Hall since last summer and guests frequently comment on its size.  You can even select a picture of this creature as a background at the Foto FX souvenir photo booth.  The mastodon has undergone some improvements since everything was first erected in the summer.

A beautiful bas relief now decorates the base that supports this massive skeleton.

Sometimes a bit of dust does need to be cleaned off the casting.  We assure younger guests that the mastodon isn't being tickled.
