Wonderful experience for all. They try to engage all age groups. Displays are first rate. The helicopter cockpit seems to appeal to youngsters.

We carried a couple visiting from Ohio. It was interesting to them and to us. It was our second visit but we enjoyed this visit as much as the first. The exhibits are great. They especially enjoyed the Indian exhibit and learning more about the...More

Conservation, shooting, education, fellowship. A unique place for a day trip. If you love the outdoors, this is the place to visit.

Great stop full of information on wild turkeys. The museum has some great exhibits for all ages, with historical background and interactive things. There is even an out of service forest fire helicopter in the building!

They have lots of turkeys, the worlds largest turkey call, animatronic sculptures, a fishing pond, a picnic area, and all sorts of outdoorsy things.

Very nicely done, talking statues very realistic, nice displays, learned about the organization and what it has accomplished. The video shooting range and helicopter simulator are not to be missed. Wasn't sure about the place, but glad we stopped and explored.

Do not go here unless you call first. We were given conflicting information about the hours, and went out of our way to visit on the holiday weekend, the Saturday before Labor Day. The grounds are beautiful, and the inside of the building looks inviting....More
