International Wildlife Museum
Located on the scenic Gates Pass Road surrounded by stately saguaros, this wildlife museum invites visitors to take a grand tour of the fauna of the earth. African antelopes share their space with big polar bears here, looking very much alive. Apart from stuffed animals, the museum also features wildlife films, dioramas, and interactive computer games. Group rates are available.
Great fun for a zoologist or boy younger than fourteen years; a bore for everyone else. basically, only taxidermy of dead animals [and to a lesser extent, birds and replites] but a very large number. the mcelroy hall alone has over two hundred. small boys may enjoy it but not anyone else. dead animals, birds, reptiles, insects and butterflies are not my cup of tea so i did not like it but there is a huge number and incredible variety; a theatre shows documentaries throughout the day
It's fun if you like a whole bunch of 'touch and feel; let the kids feel death, fun at the fuzzy dead animal museum.'

It was a fun place when I was a child, although the first thing you notice is the animals are real at which point you question how they all died. I have lived in thius state all of my life and I would never go to this place unless a relative is in town(tourist location). The atmosphere is average simply due to the fact that Arizona is hot and the museum is all in doors, so if you are looking for a place to see someones life work as a killer of White Tigers, then by all means go there; it's cool inside. As for value being excellent; it is.
