Denver Museum of Nature and Science - Northern and Rare Birds Exhibit - Spring Migration, Seward Peninsula - circa 1940
Credits: Background artist, C. Waldo Love; animal collectors, Kenneth   King and Henry Wichers Inchumuk; preparators, Henry Wichers Inchumuk  and  Jack Putnam.
Subject: Diorama portrays drifting ice floes, populated by migratory sea birds and waterfowl in the Bering Strait in mid-June.
Photo Credits: Top: DMNS staff - Bottom: Daniel J. Schneider, 2010
I’ve encountered a bit of a mystery with this diorama. The top photograph is from the DMNS’s website, and the bottom photograph was taken by Dan on our recent trip to the museum. As you can see, the background is  clearly the same, but the birds and the rocks are slightly different. I  am positive this is the same diorama, but I was not aware of the museum  having rearranged or changed the diorama in recent years. I could not  find a date on the museum’s photograph, but the diorama was constructed  in 1940.
If anyone reading this has any information on this mystery I’d appreciate knowing more!

“IT’S A SMALL WORLD, even for small fry, at the DELLS MINIRAMA. Located in downtown Wisconsin Dells, MINIRAMA shows in miniature all the outstanding scenic features of the famed Dells of the Wisconsin River. Trains and boats electronically propelled add sound and movement to this outstanding display.”

I am fairly sure this is a diorama and not live, but I have no idea from which museum. I know it is not at DMNS or AMNH.
