“We are deeply grateful to all of the remarkably talented artists, craftsmen and women, leading conservation organizations, biologists and other supporters who contributed to the creation of this facility, and to each and every person that voted – thank you!”
The museum opened in September 2017 and was critically acclaimed by celebrities and conservation leaders alike.
“In the days ahead, conservation faces many challenges,” said Becky Humphries, CEO of the National Wild Turkey Federation. “The Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium is the hub that allows us to address these challenges by bringing together our conservation community and the pubic to learn and appreciate our wonderful natural resources.”
The museum consists of a 1.5 million-gallon Aquarium Adventure showcasing 35,000 live fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds and immersive Wildlife Galleries featuring one of the largest collections of record-setting game animals.
