Explore Climate Change and Ice at CU Museum Over Winter Break | CU Boulder today

The CU Museum of Natural History will be open for in-person tours during the winter break. Visit three new exhibits, presented now, exploring climate change and ice.

Dive deep, beyond the ice of Antarctica, into the ancient dry valleys, where CU conducts world-class research! Available in Spanish. This exhibit is funded by the National Science Foundation’s McMurdo-Dry Valleys Long-Term Ecological Research Program (LTER).

In line
Ross Sea Antarctica is the last ocean frontier that has yet to be irreversibly damaged by human activity. This online exhibit offers an in-depth look at the world’s most pristine ecosystem, with images by Boulder photographer John Weller.

Anthropology room
As climate change melts the lingering ice in the northern Rockies, once-frozen artifacts are being discovered. Visit this exhibit to find out what was once lost, which is now being found.

Check out more exhibits at the CU Museum, where there is something for visitors of all ages to enjoy. The exhibitions are free and open every day.

The CU Museum is located at 15th and Broadway on the main campus. Please note that the CU Museum and Campus will be closed on December 24, 25 and 26 and January 1, 2 and 17 as officially observed holidays. Visit for hours and more information or call 303-492-6892.
