Hmmmmm

Not bad but the info at each stop needs to be a bit more accurate. The handout to keep track while touring was fun for the kids.

We go to Call of the Wild every visit to Gaylord. It's retro, a blast from the past for me since I spent a lot of summers up north. Now we take our granddaughter to Call of the Wild. So many animals to see. Nice gift shop also, friendly folks.

The children liked looking at all the animal that were there. They also liked the scavenger hunt for the animal and bear claw markings (which took awhile to find, but we finally found it). The staff was very friendly and the gift shop was nice.

Much cooler than I expected on the inside. Owner was nice and we shared a lot of history back and forth about the museum and such. Very pleased and impressed with the displays!
