GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM) -- A new exhibit on the lakeshore takes people back to an era when mammoths and saber tooth cats roamed the Great Lakes.
The exhibit, titled Ice Age Imperials opened Thursday evening at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum. Visitors can learn what life was like in the Great Lakes region more than 12,000 years ago.
"It's a really nice exhibit that has a lot of interactives. It appeals to a broad range of age levels. There's things for children such as a dig box and puzzles and rubbing plates, and also lots of touch artifacts where you can touch 10,000-year-old fossils," said museum employee Steven Radtke.
Those fossils are from ancient animals like the five ton ground sloth.
The museum is located inside the Akeley Building on Washington Avenue in downtown Grand Haven. It is open every day except for Monday.
