The museum's curator for Alaska history and culture Leggett says the exhibit looks at the connection humans have to the polar bear and the walrus.

"These two giants are also on the forefront of science and indicators of climate change," Leggett said of the exhibit. "As well as the indigenous knowledge to facilitate the better understanding of our Arctic world."

The exhibit runs through May 12, 2019.
