This museum has been on my bucket list for years, and I'm so happy to finally say that I've been here. It was exactly as I hoped. So many detailed gopher dioramas made with charm and humour, along with an awesome gift shop with a large selection of souvenirs to take home. Admission is by donation so give as much as you can and be sure to sign the guestbook. A must-see!

Have wanted to visit for years - this very unique and well done attraction has existed for 28 years and is hanging on financially. Please leave a donation! Created and run by amazing volunteers. Lots of fun paraphanelia! This is a one-of-a-kind attraction that is so incredibly unique. 💛💜🧡💚❤

This place was super cute. The admission is based on donation, so you pick how much to pay. The museum is one room with various scenes of taxidermied gophers. This is great for kids and adults alike. The museum takes about 10-30 minutes to complete. Definitely worth a detour when traveling through.
