Polar bears live in very harsh climates, so their bodies adapt to keep them warm all year round. Join us in the Explore More Collections lab to discover more about this amazing creature and learn ways we can help this endangered animal.
Take a look at polar bear artifacts including a skull, claw, fur and tooth to see how these bears were built for the cold. Check out GPS-tracking radio collars to find out how and why scientists study the bears using this technology. We also will have some giveaways from Polar Bears International and you can make a polar bear hat to take home.
