Our hotel had no literature about this museum in its attraction rack, so I guess it was luck when we decided to stop after passing it several times during our travels. What a wonderful surprise! While the collection is extensive, we found the specimens of the local wildlife exceptional. This is not a tourist trap but rather a carefully curated collection of wildlife unique to Utah, as well as some from the owners travels in Africa. The space was exceptionally organized and cared for very well. We did have the pleasure of meeting the owner who explained the background about his collection. Clearly he had great respect for nature as this was his life’s endeavor. Very informative and well done. Note: Younger children may miss the nuances of the displays.

This is a two part review. First we went to the wildlife museum. This is the most extensive collection I’ve ever seen. The detail is amazing. It was not what I expected at all. I would go again if I could. Great activity to get out of the rain or heat. There is an age requirement for young children as this is not a touch-friendly museum. Great value for a family. The owner told us some stories behind the animals which was interesting. NThen we rented a Polaris Ranger for our family of 4 for the 4 hour unguided ride through the Dixie National Forest. The trails were well maintained. The only problem we had was finding the first junction marker. After some backtracking we got to finish the entire loop. It was sprinkling when we left and I was worried our paper map would get wet and possibly blow away. I took a picture of it on my phone just in case. A laminated map would be nice to have in the Ranger. Great staff to work with!

We rented two four seat ATVs to take two families on a tour of the area around Bryce. Robert was incredibly helpful and very genuine. He made sure we knew where we were going and provided tips on where to stop and what to be looking for. Fantastic service from a quality business. We appreciated the hospitality. One caveat - we rented for four hours and the route that they send you on takes the full four hours - don’t mess around and monitor speed and time to make sure you have time to get through the whole thing and make it back on time.

We recently visited this museum and were extremely impressed by the displays of wildlife and other objects here! We really enjoyed seeing the beautiful animal specimens preserved by taxidermy, most arranged in naturalistic dioramas; posted at each diorama was an informational placard describing the animal and its normal habitat and eating habits. There is also a huge collection of heads mounted on the museum’s walls. In addition to mammals, there are beautiful butterflies and moths (displayed by locale), giant insects, fish, and even seashells and arrowheads. In a separate African room, there are specimens and artifacts pertaining to those cultures.

We spent over an hour enjoying the exhibits. We were greeted by the owner, who is obviously very passionate about his life’s work; we learned that he obtained every animal himself over many decades of acquisition—considering the scope of animals covered here, that was quite amazing. Being animal lovers, we have visited many similar wildlife exhibits (including the excellent Wonders of Wildlife in Springfield, MO); this place rivals any of those in quality and quantity.

If you are in the area to visit Bryce Canyon National Park, as we were, be sure to include a stop at this fascinating museum.

We live in Cedar City and are somewhat new to Utah. We decided to take a nice get away to visit Bryce Canyon National Park. We looked up ATV rentals and this was the only place that allowed you to go unguided. We met the owner Robert, who created the best experience for us the entire trip. Just from one visit, we could tell how much heart he puts into what he does. He squeezed us in with a last minute rental, was funny, friendly, hard-working, and gave so much advice. He is overall one amazing man. I've never seen someone so passionate about what they do. The trip was mapped out and was beautiful. We got the opportunity to see wildlife, the lake was stunning and there was still plenty of time to get back. The costs of the rentals were beyond fair and affordable and we hope that we will get to come back and see Robert again on our next visit! I HIGHLY recommend anyone looking for the perfect experience to come support this small business! You will NOT regret it.

Modern vehicle, great people and amazing scenery. Saw prairie dogs & pronghorns and had a great time cruising around in the 4 wheeler. Fun stuff and I highly recommend this as an alternative to a really long hike. We did a 2 hr ride and that was perfect. If I did it again, I might do a longer trip so I could bring a picknick lunch and just hang out for a bit in the remote woods.

When I passed by and pulled up... I truly wasn't excited to go in.

My 4 Children absolutely loved this place (ages 9, 11, 12 & 12). In fact they asked if we return to Bryce Canyon itself... If we could return here. I also was impressed. The owner was very knowledgeable and passionate about what he has created over the past 40+ years. If you're in the area - definitely worth a visit and checking out! The museum is a very extensive collection of many areas of the world. There were quite a few things I learned and the children soaked up much new info about animals too!
*A special bonus was when we discovered we could feed the deer out back*
*He also has ATV rentals & a few other associated businesses*

Our family had an amazing four hour ATV trip through the Paunsaugunt backcountry thanks to Bryce Wildlife Adventures! We were able to make a last-minute booking, and Jeff picked out a great vehicle to hold all four of us and our dog comfortably. Going over the map with Jeff was very informative and comedic - he has a way of stressing important details while keeping the mood light.

We truly appreciated the opportunity to explore the incredible vista points and wildlife at our own pace.

We will definitely do this again the next time we're in Bryce!

We did a two hour adventure on a six-person ATV. We had a blast! We saw antelope, prairie dogs, and an osprey pair. The guy that fitted us out was EXCELLENT!! So nice and helpful. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone in the area looking for a fun time and a bit of personal adventure.

Refused service to an interracial couple. Claimed it was because the ATV wasn’t working, but we saw them driving it. The woman working there walked away in the middle of us politely asking what was wrong. When we asked the man working there to help us find another rental, he just pointed down the road and said, “drive there.” When we asked if he could call the other shop to give them a heads up about what was going on, he said no.
