On June 9 the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum turns 50 years old. The museum will kick off a year of celebration with a party from 2:00 to 5:00 pm. The program will include tours of the museum, demonstrations, and hands-on activities for people of all ages. Come put on a blubber glove to find out how marine mammals keep warm, or try your hand at some northern games. The program is free and open to the public.
