Attractions, Museums


At the Mountain Wildlife Museum, we exhibit beautiful representations of taxidermy from all over the world. We’re located in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge Region. Mountain Wildlife Museum began after several pre-Act (1973) endangered species taxidermy specimens were acquired by donation for display.

After purchasing many other taxidermy specimens and adding them to the collection, the idea of a taxidermy museum was conceived.

Mountain Wildlife Museum now seeks to collect excellent crafted taxidermy specimens and display them in museums across the United States in a manner that will bring attention to the beautiful glory and wonder of the created specimens as well as educate people about the taxonomy and environmental habitats of these extant creatures.


I love the Mountain Wildlife Museum! It’s an amazing example of The Smoky Mountains. The staff is friendly and helpful, and I love seeing all the different animals that live there. I hope to come back again soon!
