We saw it on Heartland and loved it from from afar. Where else would you find a testimonial to industrious gophers. Next time in Alberta our visit won’t be virtual. In the age of COVID I am over living virtually.

Definitely, something to stop in at least once and view. The creativity and attention to detail stand out but some displays also show a good dose of humour. Friendly staff and a nice little town.

Nestled in the small village of Torrington, it is totally worth it! A small donation gets you into the museum of dioramas with gophers in different lifelike situations. They strive to update them regularity and worth a laugh if you don’t take it too seriously!

Just... odd. You've probably already decided to go there if you're reading this. It's only 1 room and will take you no more than 15 min to see everything, unless you're a very passionate gopher enthusiast. Payment is by donation ($2-5 on average). A caution to animal lovers - this is an unashamed tourist stop that has taken advantage of a large local gopher population.

I’ve heard about this place for years, but have never had a chance to come check it out until now. Apparently it has been around for 20+ yrs... unique little museum, full of gopher dioramas! Admission is by donation...
