Amherst College’s Museum of Natural History has spent the past few months moving into a brand-new state of the art building. They’ve moved the collections into new cabinets, designed new exhibits, and mounted their impressive collection of fossil dinosaur tracks for public display. Now they're filling the main hall with Ice Age mammals. You can watch. For the next two weeks a web cam will broadcast the show as Research Casting International remounts the museum’s American mastodon, woolly mammoth, and Irish elk skeletons.
When they’re finished, it’ll be spectacular. Much nicer than their former home in the old gym.

Update: They were unloading bones when I drove by this morning, so things should be getting under way soon.
