We also go when we are in town. Our boys love seeing the animals. There is also a great mini-golf place right next door.

My family went Up North almost every year when I was growing up. The Call of the Wild was ALWAYS our go-to spot on the way to the bridge. The restrooms were always clean, we loved the museum, we often bought our Minnetonka moccasins here, we ate a picnic lunch on the tables outside and I don't think we ever... More

The museum offers an interesting lesson on the history of our region. The kids enjoyed the scavenger hunt. The adults found lots to shop for, from fine boots and moccasins to Gaylord souvenirs. The fudge is delicious! The miniature golf and go carts were fun for all.

Indoor food with an extensive gift store to boot (pun intended). A museum for the kids and fudge for the parents is what we found that we enjoyed. Outside my grand kids loved the miniature golf and my wife I had had a blast on the go carts. We will be back.

kids rode the go carts and we picked up some souvenirs from the trip. Didn't do the museum tour. Seemed expensive for what it was.

We are a young family with kids under 10 and both the boys and the girl loved this place. This attraction is very close to an elk park and looks small from the outside. The curator is very helpful and pointed out some neat things that an experience eye might notice....well worth the admission price.

The gift shop is very large and had a good sale on sweat shirts. This is a very old but well cared for museum, there is nothing glitzy or modern "Disney Land" like here, but it is well done. The background paints in the diorama were very nice and the animals were well placed. I would recommend this for families,... More
