I was surprised by how many animals there were. If you want to see what kinds of animals live in the region visit The Den. Inexpensive. A great place for kids of all ages.

It is just a small museum, but we really enjoyed it. The museum is in the hotel, so you have to buy a token at the reception. It was only $6 for the family. The animals are in the basement. You don't need more than 30 Minutes, but it was just great for the kids to see all the animals... More

This little exhibit was interesting because until you actually see the animals up close you have no idea of how large or small they are. Remember this is an old fashioned way to display wild life, it was the only way before computers and virtual reality.

All these different animals were incredible to see. Some I didn't even know existed. It's complimentary if you are staying at the Whistlers Inn.

We have stayed at Whisters Inn a few times and each time we have visited the museum in the basement. Admission is free with a stay in the hotel and tokens can be had at the front desk. The specimens are a little old - probably a good 50 years old - but it is still enjoyable in an odd... More

My kids had a good time going thru the little museum. Museum had a great variety of wildlife and provided a good chance of discovering real animal sizes and to have a learning discussion. Museum should include a bit information on the different species found there.

Was told about this from a lady who was staying here. We were walking down the main road the day after and thought it worth a look. It is very small but gives you a close look at some of the animals found around the area. Cheap enough at only $6 a family, only takes 10-15 mins to go though... More

When you stay at the Whistlers inn you are given complimentary entrance to the wildlife museum that they have underneath. The variety of wildlife that they have is absolutely fascinating and really allows you to get an understanding of the size and scale of the animals. The museum is not particular big but you could spend a fair while on... More
