Bronze Mammoth Project

The Bronze Mammoth Project was marked with the dedication of a life-sized bronze statue of a Columbian Mammoth in front of Morrill Hall on the UNL Campus in 1998. The statue, named Archie, is 12-feet tall at the shoulder and measures 16-feet tall on its concrete base. Bronze plaques adorn the sides of the statue which explain how Archie lived and roamed the area we now call the State of Nebraska, and list the names of the 100 donors who made the life-sized sculpture possible.

Visit Elephant Hall inside the Museum to check out the fossil remains of Archie, the world's largest articulated mammoth.
