Experience the dynamic forces that shape Oregon’s landscapes and ecosystems.
You’ll meet massive spike-tooth salmon, giant Ice Age mammals, and other amazing fossil animals from Oregon’s deep past—and you’ll join in a conversation about climate and our collective future.
How to use the virtual exhibit:
- The small dots on the walls indicate additional resources, such as videos, text, images, or links to other websites.
- Move through the exhibit by clicking on the circles on the floor. You can go one by one, jump ahead, or move back at any time.
- Click and drag the screen left, right, up, and down to look around
- The three small icons in the bottom left corner allow you to access the “dollhouse” view, floorplan view, and measurement tool.

- Zoom in and out to get a better view.
- It is possible to view the exhibit on a phone or tablet, but a larger computer screen is optimal.
