Small museum founded by American Bone Collector, Darrell D. Blatchley, and opened in 2012 with the hope of educating people to take care of the environment (some of the marine animals displayed died as a result of ingesting plastic, for example). The collection, which has over 200 skeletons, includes preserved remains, skulls and bones of bears, a lion, horses, deer, monkeys, snakes, crocodiles, birds, a dugong, and dolphins, but the prized possession is the skeleton of a 41-foot sperm whale. Some of these Blatchey has collected from childhood; others have been donated to the museum from around the world including Canada, Russia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines.
