Lots of exhibits, but not enough hands on or gift shop items. Kids couldnt relate to real life experiences. We would of liked to feel a fur or a horn, and buy a bear tooth or postcard for memory of our visit.

This museum has a large variety of taxidermed animals from around the world. There are two floors. Large variety of birds. I was told by the volunteer that the two baby pronghorn on display were actually never born. Their mother was hit by a car before their birth. Not a bad stop.

While unassuming and small by any museum standard, we found Werner to be jam-pack filled with more than we expected. Our grandchildren just LOVED to see (face-to-face) the hundreds of creatures displayed. Grandpa was fascinated by some of the trophy animals and loved the price - FREE. It needs a bigger venue. Dated and so full of displays that it... More

I have been going to the Werner for years and years. I always enjoy taking now people as they are shocked by the amount of information stored inside. It is perhaps the best zoological display available for critters specific to our region. Don't let the diminutive size of the building dissuade you. It's worth the trip.

I haven't been here since I was a kid but it was just as cool after twenty years. My kids loved looking at the bears and the "scary" animals. I had forgotten about the downstairs! Very impressive collection! Thank you for keeping this museum going for all these years.

Our kids love this place. Every year they get re-aquainted with old 6 Toes the bear. The staff are awesome, too!

The Werner Wildlife Musuem has been around for many years. I went there several times growing up and now my daughter is going with her classmates. Lot's of cool animals and history about Casper. The Werner Wildlife Museum is home to Casper's famouse albino deer. I would recommend this for school field trips or for anyone visiting Casper.

We live only blocks away from the Werner Wildlife Museum and we finally decided to spend an afternoon exploring what it had to offer. What a great surprise it was! The lady working there was so kind and friendly and welcomed our large family and children and gave us a small talk about what the museum had to offer. She... More
