Was absolutely incredible for $4, so much to see here. The taxidermy display was awesome and the bird egg collection was quite fascinating. The elderly man who volunteered there was very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth the money.

I think it would be about a 10 minute walk as the Museum is right in the centre of town.
