On the eve of International Polar Bear Day, head to the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life to learn about polar bear behavior, diet, territory and how climate change has made it a vulnerable species.

This family-friendly festival dives into all things polar bear with activities, show-and-tell with Museum collections, and an interactive theater performance. Plus, scientists are on hand to discuss conservation, polar bears' predatory nature, and how humans have interacted with these amazing mammals through history.
