Woolly mammoths, saber-toothed tigers and sea monsters arriving soon at the May Museum.

Reno, Nevada – The Wilbur D. May Museum’s upcoming exhibit Creatures is an all-ages exploration of things that were … things that are … and things that could be! Visitors will come face-to-face with amazing full-size animatronics of woolly mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, dinosaurs, and sea monsters. Audiences will also explore the fact and fiction surrounding creatures like Bigfoot, Tahoe Tessie, dragons, and more. The Creatures exhibit features educational and interactive elements for kids, including a fossil dig, a glacier simulation display and several touch stations.

Related programming and special events are scheduled throughout the three-month exhibit, including storytelling and arts & crafts for kids, and a lecture series for adults.
