Cincinnati Museum Center is teaming up with University of Cincinnati to showcase some of our exhibits and artifacts! You can find the following exhibits around campus.
Cincinnati Under the Sea – Explore the depths of a prehistoric tropical sea that once covered the Greater Cincinnati region and examine the abundant fossil remains left behind that scientists from around the world, including many from the University of Cincinnati, continue to study.
Climate Change and Us – Take a closer look at the scientific research and discoveries, much attributed to researchers in the College of Arts and Sciences, concerning the effects and causes of global climate change. The exhibit features an interactive timeline and endangered and extinct scientific specimens that have suffered from climate change.
Big Bone Lick: A Place of Discovery –From mastodons and sabretooth tigers to early American Indians and the Founding Fathers, Big Bone Lick was a gathering place for some of the Ice Age’s most iconic animals, early American hunters and the site of America’s first paleontological expedition, organized by President Thomas Jefferson. The site, and its treasures, continue to be extensively examined by UC researchers.
Ipuh and the Genetics of Extinction – The legacy of Ipuh, one of the last remaining Sumatran Rhinoceroses, lives on after his death; the key to better understanding the role of genetics in extinction may lie in the study of his genetic material.
