This year we're thrilled to feature ornaments donated to the museum by Grace Berg Schaible. This collection of Christmas tree ornaments is as varied as her polar bear artworks, featured in the museum's special exhibit, Polar Passion. There are fragile crystal angels, hand-painted glass balls, and polar bears in all variety of poses and materials. ​Many are hand-crafted in Alaska while others reflect her joy for traveling all around the world. 
Learn more about the collection on our blog.
