Celebrate the David M. Rubenstein Family Giant Panda Habitat's new, colorful and interactive exhibit, on Feb. 23, 2019.
The Giant Panda Housewarming Celebration, sponsored by Airbnb, is free to the public and will kick off with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9 a.m., followed by activities throughout the day. Visitors can talk with panda scientists and keepers, and young panda fans can enjoy a coloring station. The giant pandas and red pandas will receive special frozen treats throughout the day, and snacks will be available for human visitors as well.
Stop by the Panda Plaza gift shop to take home a very special, free commemorative print — a copy of a painting created by Tian Tian, Mei Xiang and Bei Bei! The numbered prints, courtesy of Friends of the National Zoo, will be available one-per-family, while supplies last.
