The museum has realistic displays of wildlife which were very artistically-designed. Kudus to the developer! The taxidermy was well-done and so complimented the realism of the displays. Good opportunity to involve the kids in a bit of a contest. (Adults feel challenged by it too!)...More

The museum is fantastic and the staff are awesome. Great way to spend an hour especially if the weather is not nice. We visited recently with some friends and our kids and everyone had a blast

We went here with our young children. It’s a great learning experience for all. Lots of information but could definitely use more animals to show. This is a type of visit you love but once you seen it you won’t go back.

This is a small private museum locally created. I think they did a really good job for their efforts. They added a bit of a trivia game to make it more interesting and encourage visitors to search for all of the animals on display. This...More

Nice little museum with plenty of different types of animals. Too short of a your for the price. Kids may like this.

Kids enjoyed the museum hunt. Was what I expected. Not overly expensive. Nice little gift shop onsite.

$8.00 per person for a 5 minute tour .... not worth the price of admission. While the store itself has some great "eco-friendly" seal products the museum tour is a little lacking.

I loved this stop. The gift shop is beautiful, although expensive. The very purse I was wearing was for sale in the store but for 4 times what I paid for it from the manufacturer. The scavenger hunt was fun and helps to get the...More

The scavenger hunt definitely makes this stop worthwhile otherwise I expect we would have been in and out in 10 minutes. The 12 or so questions get you to spot certain creatures or items in the exhibits, count how many_____, and look for animal poop....More

Sorry. Ah, Spoiler alert! Yeah, all the animals are dead. Hence the word "museum" not "zoo" I guess. I don't really know what I was expecting. I guess not this; an over-sized garage full of stuffed critters. This place is certainly trippy, though. It ain't...More
