Hall of Creation, Geology & The Ice Ages

Home | Exhibits | Hall of Creation, Geology & The Ice Ages
Dig for woolly mammoth bones, study fossils, touch our living iceberg, and learn how prehistoric tropical seas and ice ages shaped Bruce County’s landscape.

While wandering through the Hall of Creation you will find three culturally different creation stories on how the world was created.  Feel how cold the ice ages would have been and how the last glacier formed what is Bruce County today.  Discover many geological records and learn more about the various time frames through history exposed in the levels of stone and rock.  Dig like a geologist and discover hidden rocks that tell the story of our evolution.  Come face-to-face with a baby mammoth and learn more about these historic beasts.  All of this and more when you start your journey through Bruce County History.
