This was a beautiful and informative museum for the area. We especially enjoyed the 'Norman Rockwell' like sculptures that were exhibited to demonstrate some of the scientists that work in such an area, such as, geologists, zoologist, etc.

This collection has been lovingly and painstakingly put together over 5 years. Not only do you get to see a great selection of Animals it is a chance to learn about the skilled art of Taxidermy. None of the animals were killed just to be put in the museum and many skins were donated.

There were 12 of us and we all thought it was a lovely way to spend a few hours the owners had all the time in the world to speak to us and tell us how it all started for them and how they got all the animals there would recommend this

The building in Rocky Harbor is fairly non descript but great exhibits lay within. I think that the thing that made this museum tour so interesting was that our group was given a personal tour by the owner. She was charming and told the stories behind the exhibits with great humor. Her passion for the work of creating these exhibits... More

I am a environmentalist and nature lover and this left much to be desired. Staff were great. It just needs more to it. Very short and it's not free.

I go every time I go to NFLD. The museum has about 7 scenes set up to showcase the type of wildlife that can be seen in those environments. For example, there is a winter and summer forest scene, underwater ocean scene, and pond scene. All animals are reproductions or stuffed by a professional taxidermist and life size. Some have...

This feels exactly like what you might expect to find in rural Canada. Fit the bill. A little pricey, but fun.
