International Wolf Center is a great little museum/educational center devoted to studying and educating the public about wolves . . . their behavior, and historic role in human culture.
Despite my previous lack of interest in wolf culture, I found this place remarkably well-executed. The building is really nice, and the main room, with a sort of diorama-in-the-round showing stuffed wolves in different situations (playing, attacking) is alone worth the price of admission. Very cool.
In the theater, I watched an hour-long movie about wolves and moose on Isle Royale, and the people who have dedicated their lives to this research. Pretty fascinating, I learned a lot and will surely be boring my friends back home with this new store of moose and wolf trivia. Better than my usual "Moose and Squirrel" trivia . . .
They have an area in back where you can view live wolves. A bunch of people were crowded around the window, apparently a wolf cub was hanging out there. In fact, as I was entering the building, a guy excitedly said to me, "Did you see the wolf cub? He was right there by the window!!" Well, no, I'm just on my way in . . . but I suppose it's something to see. I chose not to fight the crowd and went on my way.
I spent a quick hour and a half here, but anyone with kids and/or any interest in wolves could easily fill a day.
