Canadas Arctic

The Canada’s Arctic exhibit tells the story of the changes experienced by the people, land and animals. It engages visitors with stories of the melting Arctic and its impact on people and its uniquely adapted animals.

Canada’s Arctic is vast, diverse and changing. It is home to one of the largest archipelagos in the world and to animals well-adapted to living with ice. This exhibit shows how climate change is affecting this vast, remote area.
