New Featured Exhibit

New Featured Exhibit Cruisin' the Fossil Coastline

Opens Friday, March 3, 2023, through January 2024 at the Tongass Historical Museum 

Travel to the prehistoric past with Cruisin' the Fossil Coastline at the Tongass Historical Museum. Be prepared to look at the world in a whole new way in this "epoch" exhibit on Alaska fossils. Cruisin' the Fossil Coastline is an imaginative blending of science and art – polar dinosaurs, giant marine reptiles, palm filled forests, to tiny trilobites and much more. 

Artist Ray Troll and paleontologist Kirk Johnson, director of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, logged more than 10,000 miles and 250 days traveling the North American coast in search of fossils and the stories they tell. They visited museums, dove into research collections, hung out with fellow scientists and artists, and visited active dig sites via automobiles, small airplanes, and boats.

This exhibit focuses on their fossil adventures with highlights from Southeast Alaska and the remarkable stories that fossils reveal. Learn about the history of life on Earth punctuated by killer asteroids and mass extinctions. Discover the ancient geology of prehistoric Alaska and its giant marine reptiles, the ichthyosaurs, found on nearby islands. Come face to face with a giant Ice Age bear and its cousins in the sea, the seals and sea lions. On display for the first time are Ray's original field books and sketches from when he was cruisin' the fossil coastline.
