The Wildlife display at this simple pioneer museum is outstanding!

In a large room attached to the Pioneer museum, are animals from around the world attractively displayed in their respective habitats, which were created by a local artist. Mountain goats frolic down the edge of a mountain, antelope graze, and a walrus shivers in the cold artic ocean!

This display rivals others at larger museums.
If you're lucky, a senior who accompanied Mr. Mjolness on many a safari, will be present to relate stories of their travels.

It is a beautiful wildlife display, and increases everyone's appreciation for the wonderful animals from around the world. You could even take your nature journal and enjoy sketching!

The Pioneer displays are of local artifacts displayed in room groupings, and make for interesting discussions of life in days gone by.

Nearby is a river where you might wind up your day with a stroll or picnic.
