Last Chance to See Wonders of the Arctic

News posts

Spring seems to have sprung early in the city this year, but if you’re looking for a taste of wintry weather, stop by the Museum this week, where you can see Wonders of the Arctic on the LeFrak Theater’s giant screen in 2D and 3D. 


Closing on Thursday, March 2, this documentary explores the amazing resilience—and surprising abundance—of life in one of the most intense and unforgiving environments on the planet.

Filmed against a backdrop of glittering ice and snow, polar bears tussle, huskies howl, and narwhals dive in turquoise waters as Wonders of the Arctic delves into the lifestyles and adaptations that make life possible in this beautiful but fragile landscape.

Coming next to the LeFrak Theater is Humpback Whales, which documents the lives of some of the world’s most massive marine mammals, offering an up-close look at how these whales communicate, feed, play, and more.
