The International Wildlife Museum is dedicated to increasing knowledge of, and appreciation for the diverse wildlife of the world as well as explaining the role of wildlife management in conservation. Founded in 1988, the museum highlights over 400 species of animals from around the globe.
Dioramas depicting wild animals in their natural settings promote wildlife appreciation and conservation. See animals up close and gain a better understanding of their habitat, size and adaptive characteristics. Hands-on displays, interactive exhibits, and wildlife films provide fun and educational experiences for all ages.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
