My three year old absolutely loved the Wanamaker Wildlife Wing! You can get right up to the mounted animals and take wonderful pictures without glass or ropes blocking the view! They have a giraffe, lions, an elephant, polar bears, a tiger, and the list goes on and on. The Mastadon exhibit is nice, as well as the Pony Express covered wagon. They have a lovely gift shop with local artists selling their goods. This is a family-friendly museum that you can see time and time again!

This is one of the best display of animals that I have ever seen. Each time you look there are many animals in each view.

People actually travel for 3 hours to see this museum -it is a litle bit art, a little bit history but the Wanamaker Exhibit is the real deal -if you are traveling from salt Lake to reno or vica versa, this is your museum attraction -the National gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender Travel Desk
