We feel for our guests, our friends, our fellow small business owners and nonprofits who were already struggling with trying to do more with less. We have been lucky to be a self sufficient non-profit entity since our initial grant 25 years ago but with buildings aging faster than we can fill the...

The World Famous Gopher Hole Museum is quite the way to spend a hour. This is a great family friendly activity and road trip or day trip. The facility is small but it is a non profit that runs by donation. The displays were very cute and had little details that you don't necessarily notice on first glance so going back and looking again adds. The town also has all of their fire hydrants painted like little golphers. Very cute!

Who wouldn't want to go see taxidermied rodents placed in painstakingly constructed community scenarios? From "Yard Sale" to "Wedding" and "Post Office," no detail has been spared to bring the more than three dozen dead-animal dioramas to life. Admission is by donation only, making it an affordable outing for the whole family (but don't be cheap!) and the gentleman who crafted the scenes (with the help of a backdrop artist and a taxidermist, of course) is a delight to chat with. There's also a small gift shop on site along with washrooms and parking at the back. Go! You won't regret it!

Cutest little museum ever!! I’ve been meaning to come here for a while and was finally able to. The lady working here was also super nice. This place is 100% worth visiting!
