Indiana GIVEAWAY: Win Indiana State Museum Admission Tickets!

Ice Age Giants

UPDATE: This contest is now closed. Congrats to Alina H.!

Meet Fred. He’s big, and not only in size, but he’s big news, and big-time with his own Twitter account.

Earlier this week I was invited to preview the new Ice Age Giants exhibit at the Indiana State Museum, and WOW was it neat! Never in a million (or 13,000 years as it were) years would I have imagined that there are so many amazing artifacts like Mastodon bones (like Fred) that could be dug up right here in the Hoosier state.

Ice Age Giants: The Mystery of Mammoths and Mastadons opened last week and will continue through August of 2014.

This is an educational experience like none other, where you can explore Ice Age forensics as you determine mastodon from mammoth, male from female, age and cause of death.

Did you know nearly every county in Indiana has had bones excavated from these enormous elephant-like creatures?! Nine mastodon, and one mammoth skeleton from Northern Indiana have been secured by eight major museums for mounted skeletons.

Ice Age bonesThis must-see exhibit is only at the Indiana State Museum, and one of you can tour the museum to see Ice Age Giants and much more, for free!

One winner will win a pair of Indiana State Museum admission tickets to bring a friend along. The giveaway begins NOW and ends at midnight on Tuesday, 11/26/13. Contest is open to Indiana residents only.

We love going down to Indy for the children’s museum but have never been here – I think our 3 year old son would love it.

Would love to take the kids to the State Museum! I haven’t been in years… This would be a great homeschool field trip for us! :) Thank you for the chance to win!
