International Wildlife Museum

 

Part museum, part conservation hub and a complete blast, this unique destination is dedicated to global wildlife. Educational programs, conservation efforts and information on wildlife management is at the heart of the museum which houses more than 400 displays of mammals, insects and birds—some of which are over a century old.

All preserved animals were donated by rehabilitation centers, zoos, government agencies and a handful of individuals. Visitors are treated to dioramas depicting animals in their natural habitats. There are videos, hands-on exhibits to encourage the appreciation of wildlife and interactive displays. Get a chance to see exotic creatures up close to better understand how we all fit together in this world.

The Science Behind the Museum

As part of the Safari Club International Foundation, a non-profit agency, the museum is committed to outdoor education as well as humanitarian services.

Open daily at 9 a.m., the museum is located at 3800 W. Gates Pass Road. Visitors can also explore the gift shop for unique souvenirs, apparel and toys. Admission is $9 for adults, and umbrella strollers and wheelchairs are available. Find out more about special events and new exhibits at the official site.
