This ultra modern, super-insulated building is being built to study and showcase the great Siberian mammoth and the region’s unique, naturally patterned permafrost layer. The website states that “the centre will contain an intact mammoth discovered nearby and provide access to underground galleries from which the permafrost can be viewed.” Bundle up, and prepare to ooh and aah over a recently discovered intact woolly mammoth found nearby, and a café that floats above an indoor garden.
