“Awesome small town museum”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

What a great small town museum. Professionally owned and operated by a young local couple, their passion for wildlife education is wonderful. I love traveling in rural areas and have seen lots of small town museums and heritage sites, this is one of the best.You discover the typical wildlife in Gros Morne National Park, can enjoy a 'wheres Waldo' exhibit where you get to identify lots of animals and critters, plus they have a very unique gift shop with locally made products. Best of all, we were there off-season and the owner was kind enough to accept a special request to allow us to enjoy a visit. A definite must stop along the Viking Trail.

“Great Place”
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.

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!”
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.
