  • We spent two hours exploring the exhibits, enjoying watching our grandkids aged 8, 6, and 3 wander around and discover animals from around the world. Favorites were the elephant, giraffes, and wolves....  more »

  • This is such a cool place! It’s really interesting seeing all of the taxidermy. I’m not a big fan of killing animals for their skins, but my friend who works there told me that most of the exhibits are at least one hundred or two hundred years old, or the animal passed on naturally. Really neat way to raise awareness for animals, and it really increases your appreciation of animals.
  • It's a fun place to go. It is an wildlife museum, not a museum about beans. The remodel they did a few years ago really improved and updated things. It's free and there are cool animal shows sometimes (check the schedule). It's like going to the zoo, but without the smell.
