There are lots of pictures and replica's of mammoths and mastodons - some you could hold and others life size. . There are lots of "Please Touch" signs. There are also lots of videos and interactive exhibits A good one was the cave where you can use a remote control to shine light and identify some of the drawings on the walls.

Great video describing Lyuba, how she died, how she was found, and how they learned from her.
[UPDATE May 22, 2012: Here are two videos from National Geographic. I think there were parts of these two, plus another in the video we saw. The first is about the discovery of Lyuba:
Here's a link to a video of the discovery of Lyuba. (I couldn't get the embed code to work.) The second is of the autopsy:
Any idea where or when the most recent mammoth tusks were found?
3,700 years ago isn't that long a time. There were some relatively sophisticated human societies living then in China and the Middle East.
And then we went outside, got rid of most of our clothes and went Mastodon hunting behind the museum.
