Dioramas

"The goal of the exhibit is ... to recreate, within the walls of the Museum, the wonder of encountering nature in all its beauty and in doing so, nurturing an appreciation for and an understanding of these often endangered ecosystems and their associated flora and fauna." 
- Steve Quinn, Senior Project Manager, Exhibition Department
