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!

Such a unique experience. If you’re ever driving between Calgary and Edmonton, I would recommend stopping by. The volunteers are super informative!
