I loved this stop. The gift shop is beautiful, although expensive. The very purse I was wearing was for sale in the store but for 4 times what I paid for it from the manufacturer. The scavenger hunt was fun and helps to get the...More

The scavenger hunt definitely makes this stop worthwhile otherwise I expect we would have been in and out in 10 minutes. The 12 or so questions get you to spot certain creatures or items in the exhibits, count how many_____, and look for animal poop....More

Sorry. Ah, Spoiler alert! Yeah, all the animals are dead. Hence the word "museum" not "zoo" I guess. I don't really know what I was expecting. I guess not this; an over-sized garage full of stuffed critters. This place is certainly trippy, though. It ain't...More

Museum explains immediately how they acquired the animals in the exhibit, so anyone who is concerned about that, don't worry. Interesting panoramas of wildlife in the park. Plus a "treasure hunt" to keep kids interested. Offers tactile experience also

Here you will see wildlife in a natural setting. Seniors rates are available. They make it fun by having a scavenger hunt with a reward draw of $500 to spend in their large gift shop.

This was a beautiful and informative museum for the area. We especially enjoyed the 'Norman Rockwell' like sculptures that were exhibited to demonstrate some of the scientists that work in such an area, such as, geologists, zoologist, etc.

This collection has been lovingly and painstakingly put together over 5 years. Not only do you get to see a great selection of Animals it is a chance to learn about the skilled art of Taxidermy. None of the animals were killed just to be...More
