“Certainly, the birds are static, but the exhibit as a whole engages the visitor, and gives those of us less knowledgeable about birds an opportunity to give them our full attention.”

–Ken Rogers, The Bismarck Tribune
This little jewel presents almost 200 specimens set in context. A fresh approach to showcase design enabled curator and artifact friendly display techniques while keeping production on budget. Showcases were designed to fit two locations: first the existing space in the old museum and second in the new museum space. The Birds of North Dakota exhibit was the first completed exhibit in the North Dakota Heritage Center’s new facility.
