This museum has a little mix of everything. The displays are incredibly interesting, containing stuffed creatures and information that one may have not known before. All for donation! Great place for a day visit or field trip.

There are many exhibits that are educational and informative. Well worth the time to visit by your self, with a family, or schedule a group tour.
