Recently opened museum of mammoth can be a good choice to spend with whole your family. People have always wanted to understand more about the diverse nature of life on Earth and the mysterious manner in which animal species have appeared or disappeared in the course of history.  A museum of paleontology which was inaugurated in the year 2010—as it happens, just two years after the most recent Ice Age remains in this part of the world were discovered in the form of some 400 animal fragments unearthed in the seaside town of Viladecans. Housing a varied collection of prehistoric animal skeletons and other remains as well as life-size animal reproductions, the BarcelonaMammothMuseum is designed to offer both the general public and specialist researchers a window on the nature of the Ice Age and Ice Age animals. The exhibits were brought together with the help of some of the world’s most complete paleontological collections and with prehistoric remains excavated during expeditions in the Americas, Canada and Russia.
