Located on the Arthur Ross Terrace, on the Museum's north side, The Polar Rink offers magnificent views of the glowing Rose Center for Earth and Space and is surrounded by Theodore Roosevelt Park.
Skaters glide around a 17-foot-tall polar covered in twinkling lights.
Non-skaters can enjoy the splendor of The Polar Rink from surrounding benches on the Terrace under trees adorned with lights, or from the glassed-in North Galleria adjacent to the rink; where hot cocoa and snacks are served.
