Notes: The Kuopio Museum is located in the city of Kuopio, in central Finland. The mammoth exhibit opened in June, 1999, and features a life-sized woolly mammoth, which is a replica of one found along the River Lena in Siberia.  Madrugada said that this museum is right across the street from where she works, so she goes there sometimes when they have new exhibits.  I have seen mammoth skeletons at the Kenosha Public Museum in Wisconsin.  One of them is the most complete mammoth skeleton ever found, with around 90% of the bones intact.
