NOVA Polar Extremes

The Natural History Museum hosts a sneak preview of  NOVA’s upcoming episode, Polar Extremes. Guests are treated to exclusive sneak peek of clips from the film; the full-length version premieres in February on PBS.

In this episode, host Kirk Johnson follows a trail of strange fossils found in all the wrong places and uncovers the bizarre history of the poles, from miles-high ice sheets to warm polar forests teeming with life.

During the event, Julia Cort, Co-Executive Producer of NOVA, moderates a Q&A discussion with Johnson, the filmmakers, and local paleontology experts.

The event is free to attend and guests arriving after 2pm  receive free admission to the museum. RSVP required.
