I've never been to a museum full of stuffed animals before so I enjoyed it! It was inexpensive to go in and doesn't take very long to walk around.

It would be very interesting if you were from the city but we live in the country in BC beside a river so we have most of these animals in our backyard. Kids would really like it. It was worth walking through.

Not what you’d expect in a museum, this one almost exclusively features local taxidermy animals in a faux wildlife setting. I visited on a blustery September afternoon, so this is recommended for rainy days. It is rather small, and I imagine children particularly would enjoy examining the posed animals. The entrance is difficult to locate, and tickets acquired at hotel... More

Only $1.50 per person to enter. Not a large place by any means but it has some really well done taxidermied animals inside. Great place to spend some time on a rainy day. Our kids really enjoyed it.

We didn't realise the museum was in a basement of a hotel which was weird. We were expecting to pay $3 but groups between 2 & 6 get in for $6 so 4 of us paid $1.50 each! We had the place to ourselves and loved every minute of it all! Took many photos to prove others disbelief and may... More

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.
