Went here because we had been here about 60 years ago. Fun driving up to the museum itself because you get to see the collection of animals on the Preserve. And then you get to the museum itself which has an amazing collection.

The grounds (3900 acres) are beautiful with lots of interesting wildlife. The lodge is very nice. The museum is amazing! It takes a while to see the entire collection. We picnicked on the grounds.
