“Very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

A lot of people we met said they never saw any wildlife. Many of the animals are from vehicle incidents. It is a nice display & very informative. Great place to see the ones you never saw on your travels. A lot safer too.

“Extremely well done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Animals are stufffed and look like they are walking right up to you. Extremely well done. Staff there give a scavenger hunt to children and telll us so much. Gift shop there is terrific. The Museum is a must see. Sealskin products for sale. We have been brainwashed to believe that we should not buy seal products.. Nonsense. The seals must be culled or the numbers would become unmanageable. Clubbing is no longer the method used. The couple that own the museum and shop are so excellent at what they do.

“Awesome small town museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

What a great small town museum. Professionally owned and operated by a young local couple, their passion for wildlife education is wonderful. I love traveling in rural areas and have seen lots of small town museums and heritage sites, this is one of the best.You discover the typical wildlife in Gros Morne National Park, can enjoy a 'wheres Waldo' exhibit where you get to identify lots of animals and critters, plus they have a very unique gift shop with locally made products. Best of all, we were there off-season and the owner was kind enough to accept a special request to allow us to enjoy a visit. A definite must stop along the Viking Trail.

“Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

The wildlife in their natural habitat is great here. The owner does the taxidermy himself and his wife took all of the background pictures in Gros Morne. Great places to go and see all the local wildlife and learn about them. The gift shop is great as well, a little pricy but great products.

Thank you very much for your review! We are very happy that the exhibit impressed you because we take a lot of pride in it :) The gift shop definitely has some unique, higher end products, but we will continue to offer some lower priced souvenirs as well.

All the best!
