Take a few minutes to check it out. It is a really magnificent display! It's at the Mobil station off Exit 61 on I90.

As other reviews npote, this is located onsite at a gas station-the cleanest most well stocked one around no less. A display of dozens of wild animals are on display for free. Almost any anima You could imagine and then some. My kids and husband really enjoyed the stop!

It is certainly unusual that a wildlife museum is connected to a gas station. My wife enjoyed it, but thought that it was certainly unusual.

So we pulled in for gasoline and a few beers and we're blown away not even expecting this! This was the coolest gas station/ museum I've ever been to...and possibly the only one of its kind. Our visit was accidental and we'll worth it. I would visit this again purposely next time.

If you have any interest in taxidermy, be sure to take a few minutes to check this place out. Its just a black off the interstate located on the grounds of a gas station. There's no admission charge and it doesn't take long to see everything. The collection includes eveyrhing from giraffes to deer to a hippopotamus, all of which... More

This place is located in the first gas station (Mobil) off the first I90 westbound Rapid City exit. While I filled the car, my wife went to use the facilities. She came back to the car much too soon and just about grabbed me saying, "You gotta see this!" It takes about 30 minutes to take in the exhibit. The... More

This is the coolest gas station that I have ever been to. While travelling to Mt. Rushmore we stopped here and were amazed. The store practically doubles as a natural history museum. The owner is an avid big game hunter and has traveled the world pursuing his hobby. His collection of trophies includes lions, an elephant, a giraffe, bears, a... More
