Stepping Out of the Past



Opening December 3rd, 2016!

Produced in collaboration with Mt. San Jacinto College, Stepping Out of the Past is a journey into humanity and our ancestors.

Take a journey into the not-so-distant past and meet case studies like Shanidar 1, a Neandertal who lived to old age despite numerous injuries. Piece together the fossils of early man in our dig pit. Walk through a prehistoric cave and leave your own cave art for other guests to find.

From Homo naledi to the Neandertals, this exhibit will introduce guests to their extended family tree.
