  • It's a great place to take the family, it doesn't cost anything, but they do ask for donations. There is large, and small creature to look at. They gave us a scavenger sheet, and we found things that ...  more »
  • Visited the museum with my 2 year old grandson and he was so excited to see the animals. I can't wait to go back with my seven year old granddaughter and even look forward to going by myself.  more »

  • My feelings about this museum are mixed. On one hand, the museum and displays are nicely done, and my children enjoyed seeing the different animals up close. On the other hand, the museum is essentially a trophy room showcasing the rare and exotic animals this couple has shot and killed. Furthermore, the museums' claims about being nature-loving conservationists seems absurd when one realizes this couple has likely killed nearly every animal in the museum, including a giraffe, white tiger, elephant, and polar bear. I'm sorry, but true nature lovers don't spend tens of thousands of dollars to travel the world and slaughter animals. The museum only asks $5 per adult to enter, but I wonder if visitors are actually funding the couple's next big-game hunt.
  • Been wanting to go to this place with my kids ever since I moved out to Sherman. My 5 and 11 year old loved it. It was great to see these animals up close and get a sense of size. The scavenger hunt was pretty fun for as well. I would definitely recommend it and will return in the future.
  • Wonderful and educational. A must see for all ages. We loved it!!! Kids under 12 is free and adults is only a $5 donation.
  • Decent little museum, but only worth one visit, and doesn't take long to get through
  • Sad place. Nothing but a huge trophy room of two individuals who's hobby is travelling around the world killing animals. Seeing their portraits all over the place was kind of creepy.
