Visit the Polar Bear Habitat for a Uniquely Northern Experience!

   If you are planning a visit, the best time to see our bears is in the morning when they are their most active. Please keep in mind that the bears will sometimes not be outdoors for their own safety and comfort. Strong wind conditions mean the bears must be brought into the bear holding facility to avoid injuries from falling trees. They also have access to this facility during the day to cool themselves off.

KEEPER TALKS

   This is a unique opportunity to hear about our bears from the people who know them best – their keepers.

   Twice a day, we offer opportunities to hear our expert keepers talk about the bears in their care and the conservation work being done for them. This is also a great chance to ask them any questions you have!
