Fun and Frugal Kids Activities
The $6.50 was the cost for a family of 7 to get into the museum. The museum is just so strange it’s fascinating. Everyone really enjoyed the museum because its just so weird to see dead animals dressed up. There was a sweet little grandma that worked there and we asked her why they decided to build the museum. They wanted to have a tourist attraction so they were originally going to build a giant glass container so people could see live gophers underground burrowing. But that was too hard so someone suggested displaying dead gophers and the idea was born from there. There is a group of people that decorate these gophers. The Grandma I talked to has knit some of the clothes. She said you have to have a good sense of humour to appreciate the museum…indeed.
