The Museum of the Earth celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year and is starting off the party with a new, permanent exhibit on glaciers! Visitors will feel as if they are immersed in an ice cave as they learn all about glaciers: their characteristics, locations around the world, connections with climate, and impacts on animals and humans. Kids will crawl through small spaces and explore the science of glaciers by touching glacial ice, investigating ice cores, and learning about the inside and outside of glaciers!
Help bring glaciers to Ithaca, Tompkins County, the Finger Lakes region and the Southern Tier! We've already raised 88% of the $285,510 needed—only $35,246 to go!
This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Tompkins County Tourism Program, Wegmans, PRI Trustees, and generous community support.
