“Great Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

The wildlife in their natural habitat is great here. The owner does the taxidermy himself and his wife took all of the background pictures in Gros Morne. Great places to go and see all the local wildlife and learn about them. The gift shop is great as well, a little pricy but great products.

Visited August 2011

Thank you very much for your review! We are very happy that the exhibit impressed you because we take a lot of pride in it :) The gift shop definitely has some unique, higher end products, but we will continue to offer some lower priced souvenirs as well.

All the best!

“View Canadian wildlife in natural settings recreated by an expert taxidermist!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2011

What an outstanding array of animals to view up close! As an elementary school teacheeighth s love for nature, I am always looking for opportunities to learn more about my environment. This set of exhibits in various habitats is a real treat! I only wish I could bring my
class from Vancouver to The Wildlife Museum for a field trip! It's an excellent resource for school groups and families.

“Great experience - one of the best nature displays I have ever seen anywhere, it is not to be missed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2010

This is an incredibly good display showing animals in their natural habitat and looking natural. The young owners have done all the work themselves from road kill or buying a polar bear skin and reconstructing etc.. This was one of the highlights of my recent trip to Newfoundland. Don't miss it.

“Wow.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2010

This is truly an amazing place to visit if you're in Rocky Harbour. The life-like scenarios that over 100 animals are set in is visually interesting, educational, and a testament to the passion the owners have for what they do. If you think Taxidermy isn't your thing, you just might be surprised when you come up close with a life-size moose or polar bear. Got questions about the trade or exhibit? The two owners will be more than happy to share their expertise with you in a way that will leave you wanting more! Do not miss this exhibit!
