The young bears were accompanied by animal care staff during their trip from the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium, where they have lived since December 2008.
The bears were born at the Toledo Zoo in November 2006.
It has been 20 years since polar bears were featured at the zoo, Executive Director Dale Schmidt said.
The new $20-million exhibit will feature animals that live in some of the coldest climates in the world, the zoo said.
