In April 2016, I lucked into an early, sneak peek at Johnny Morris's Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium. Back then, there was still construction going on and some of the exhibits had not yet opened, but what I did see was simply amazing. For starters, the whitetail and other big-game trophies on display were jaw-dropping—absolute giants. But what was most impressive was attention to detail in the taxidermy and dioramas. Nearly two years later, I still remember one particular full-body whitetail mount that had frost around its nose, and when you see some of the more over-the-top exhibits, such as the polar room or "Sheep Mountain," you feel like you're in another world. And then there were the aquariums, full of freshwater and saltwater fish, big-gamers and panfish. It was all a little overwhelming—in the best possible way.
