Meet our Mammoth at Shropshire Through Time Exhibition

Find out about the chilling Ice Age and meet our mammoth – a full size replica of the skeleton found at Condover, near Shrewsbury. You’ll get a flavour of life in the Iron Age and discover the story of some of Shropshire’s many medieval castles and you'll see some of the people, places and products that continue to make the Shropshire Hills a special place today.

With plenty to interest the adults, we have something for everyone and to entertain the children during your visit, we’ll challenge them to become landscape detectives, with our Timeline Trail. By the end of your visit, when you head out into the hills, you will be inspired to spot some of their stories for yourself.

NEW ADDITIONS TO 2017: Soar over the Shropshire Hills landscape with stunning drone footage in our brand new panoramic film. Also joining the well known Shropshire Mammoth, along with the new film, are new interactives and games for all the family to enjoy. From start to finish, use all of your senses to explore the Ice Age through to the present day here in the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, home of local charity, Grow Cook Learn. Find out about the mammoth's diet and explore the sights and smells of an Iron Age hut. Enjoy the medieval banquets and learn all about the food, history and landscape of the Shropshire Hills.
