A well hidden treasure that does not appear to have the exposure it deserves. Any family visiting would have to walk away with the feeling of time well spent. Its not overly large but contains enough specimen's to make for an informative 30minutes or so good value education. Highly recommended.

This quirky little museum is located in the basement of whistlers inn, it's a totally unique stop that is filled with plenty of local taxidermy. It's kind of small but there is plenty to see!

For a non-local this was a great stop (we were able to accurately identify the family of lynx crossing the highway on the way out of town - WOW!!). Great taxidermy, creative placement of partial animals. Would have been nice to know how the collection came about. Could be tricky to find - downstairs at the Whistler Inn; known alternately...

Great array of "stuffed" wildlife. Not sure how the Javelina Hog from Tucson, Arizona got there but well worth the price of admission! Self guided tour 15-30 minutes.

We stopped in here after eating dinner at Cassino's...what a cute museum. Museum is small but jammed backed with animals and they are very well done - kids would love it and the price is right - worth checking out

When the weather is not good you find something to do indoors. The cost was worth it and the location was right. We even made a game of it by identifying the animals that were done by very good taxidermists.

Found this little museum after asking the front desk, cost only $3 per per adult. Had several sections of some of the local (stuffed) animals in their natural settings. Was very interesting. Every animal is labeled in case you don't know what it is. Saw a few baby ones that I have never seen before.

Good for education and kids! Wouldnt suit anyone who didn't like real animals stuffed. Ask for a token when eating at the Italian restaurant :)
