Dan Johnson 34 E. Main St., Glenville, WV 462-7 31 or 462-7000 Realistic wildlife museum opens Children and adults alike will marvel at the magnificent and awe- inspiring wildlife displays at the new Ryan Family Adventures Wildlife Museum located on Cor- ridorG (Route 119), near Charles- ton. Magnificent detail and life- like realism are what distinguishes this museum from others through- out the country. The new museum houses over 25 displays of North American animals in their natural habitats, crafted by local and national art- isls and taxidermists. The scenes depict everything from the grace and beauty of fierce mountain li- ons to the charm of a brown bear hibernating with her cub. Commitment to quality and exquisite detail are hallmarks of this outstanding multi -million dol- lar tribute to North American wild game. The authentic-looking wild- life scenes have been carefully crafted by artists and taxidermists Ryan and members of his fam- ily have worked hard to achieve high standards in the quality of the museum's displays. The Disney- quality exhibits were built with attennon to detail that is amazing. In one display featuring the Alaska-Yukon Moose, the stream that the moose is walking through was painstakingly crafted from thin shoots of acrylic. Even the tiniest water droplets are visible on the moose's nose and flanks. Close attention was paid to the smallest details of each habitat setting for truly impressive effects. However, details don't come cheap: the first exhibit featuring the Canadian Moose cost approxi- mately $150,000 to construct. Unlike other museums where the animals are exhibited in sta- tionary positions, some of these animals have been perfectly fro- zen in mo!ion.
