About
The International Wildlife Museum is dedicated to increasing knowledge of and appreciation for the diverse wildlife of the world, as well as explaining the role of wildlife management in conservation. Founded in 1988, the museum has over 400 kinds of insects, mammals and birds from all over the globe. Some of the collections are more than 100 years old and all the species found at the museum were donated by various government agencies, wildlife rehabilitation centers, captive breeding programs, zoos and individuals. The museum features a collection of animals from all over the world, along with dioramas re-creating the natural environment in which these animals live. Your visit is an excellent opportunity to see animals up close and gain a better understanding of their size and adaptive characteristics. The museum has many touchable specimens on display.

Learning the animals in the world.
Feb 2020
This museum has a taxidermy. Well put together.

This is also the history of Theodore Roosevelt. I learned a lot of TheodoreIt is als Roosevelt.

The animals are stuffed and no one will be hurt.

Everything is beautiful. They make the animals it attractive and how animals.

They make scenery and everybody enjoy the animals.

They also show the dodo. Wow!

There are several rooms with lots and lots of Taxidermy.

They put a taxidermy with another with an other. It looks like its is alive.

When I went to this place, I saw the lion first.

I took 3 to 4 hours. It was so attractive and it was not expensive

What a fantastic surprise !
Mar 2020
We were driving around the Saguaro National Park West and happened upon the International Wildlife Museum. What a fantastic Museum !It has more than 400 kinds of wildlife, in their natural settings, and very lifelike. There are supporting events, computers, diorama, it's an absolute wonder. I'm sorry it's not better publicized, we almost missed it and it's truly a treasure not to be missed.

Strange Attraction
Mar 2020
We found this museum a bit disturbing and unsettling, not certain about its purpose. We stayed only a few minutes returning from Saguaro National Forest.

Amazing taxidermy!
Jan 2020
For only 7 dollars (senior price) I spent an amazing couple of hours looking a animals from around the world. The museum is well laid out with lots of different rooms and couches to sit and spend time looking at this vast array of animals.

An Indoor Taxidermy Zoo
Dec 2019
This was actually more interesting than I expected, and a great way for young and old alike to learn about the appearance of less well known members of the animal kingdom. It was certainly the largest selection of taxidermied animals I had ever seen. Some of the exhibits are very old and showing their age, and the organization was a bit haphazard with multiples of the same animals scattered throughout, but it was definitely worth the admission price. Although we visited in the winter, it would be a great place to head for a cool indoors visit during the hot Tucson summer when e.g. the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum seemed less inviting.

We joined our friends with younger children. We had a blast doing the scavenger hunt. The worlds largest puzzle was a treat to see at the end of our visit. Very educational trip!

Thank you for visiting and for your review. We hope non-hunters will visit, appreciate the diverse amount of wildlife and learn how hunting is a valuable tool in wildlife management and conservation.
