Truly great work done by this Museum to make around 100 animals look very life like. Its an impressive exhibit however the displays are cramped into a building that is way too small for you to truly enjoy the full beauty of the work. Since it is some small a display area that should take you over an hour to... More

The Mammoth Cave Wildlife Museum was almost like a museum of a museum. Most displays had been there for many years, and some insect and bird specimens were disintegrated or showing their age. There were several varieties of stuffed wolves, elk, bears, etc., and mounted insect varieties. It was an interesting experience at a reasonable price, with a pretty cool... More

Was very interesting to learn about all the wildlife around the world. The kids really enjoyed to self guided tour and was a learning experience for them. Reasonably priced.

I was kind of afraid my children would get scared of everything in this museum, however they really enjoyed it. Simple museum and the price matched it. Would attend again

Having to take a bus was kinda inconvenient for those of us needing to be on a schedule. Having to wait for the other people to get back put us on the road later than we wanted to be.

This place really surprised me. I was thinking it would be "Biily Bobs taxidermy and stuffed animal collection". It was, however, a cool place filled with museum quality specimens and artifacts. I Was shocked that something this nice was only 90 minutes from my house. You will see actual dead critters, perfectly preserved in a natural looking setting. You will... More

This place is old and out of date but fun to go through a lot of neat stuffed animals to look at . To make this place cool it needs an update.

Mammoth cave is one of the most consistent National Parks in the system. Always 58 degrees. A fun and interesting walk underground. Learn how these caves were created. Tours are as easy or difficult as you would want. Long, short, clean or dirty. A don't miss in the park system.
