Posted at 7:48 AM, Dec 30, 2015

The Buffalo Museum of Science is featuring "Polar Activities" as part of their Biodiversity Exhibit. It gives visitors a hands-on chance to experience Inuit culture. 

"You can try your hand at drilling and we'll also look at different drums," said Karen Wallace the president of the museum. "We'll also look at the adaptations of the animals as well that live in the cold regions."

When you walk into the family friendly exhibit you'll be greeted by a massive polar bear standing on a block of ice and two rabbits. One rabbit is brown the other is white to show how it adapts during the winter months to blend in.

"This week we're highlighting the polar region," said Wallace. "We want people to understand one thing about biodiversity and that it is important for life on Earth."

Towards the back wall of the exhibit there are Inuit culture games and activities to take art in as well as different animal furs to touch.

This special art of the exhibit runs through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Information on general admission to the museum can be found here.

Information for their next big event, Energy Day, can be found here.
