  • This is worth taking a half-day to visit. More than just a collection of animal paintings, it places wildlife art in its historical context, explaining the shifting views on nature and wildlife during the artists' lifetimes and how these are reflected in their work - in addition to the intersection of subject matter with popular artistic styles such as the Impressionist movement. Most of the pieces are paintings, but there are also sculptures and photography. It broadens the perspective to see that concerns over wildlife issues - and conversely, the role of nature in the life of man - are not merely a modern phenomenon but that people have been grappling with these questions for a long time. I would place this museum on the same level as any inner-city institution.
  • Great art museum with some kid's crafts but probably more interesting for adults. Museum has wildlife art and some sculpture, especially outside. If you don't want to spend money just park outside and walk around the sculptures. Inside the museum are great wildlife paintings. We stopped here during our camping trip and it was a nice break. Beautiful clean bathrooms and a nice restaurant.
