Opening May 2013!
Preliminary concept drawing
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 ice caves, feel the icy glacier, hear ice cracking, and investigate ice cores!
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!
