Description

Founded in 1988, the International Wildlife 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. Dioramas depicting wild animals in their natural settings, videos, and hands-on exhibits provide fun and educational experiences for all ages. Your visit is an excellent opportunity to see animals up close and gain a better understanding of their size and adaptive characteristics.
