Wildlife Galleries

This Land is Your Land

Explore exhibits featuring the most extreme wildlife habitats in the world.

Travel around the world during your visit to the Wonders of Wildlife Wildlife Galleries. State-of-the-art 4D dioramas will completely surround you with the sights, sounds and smells of the planet's most extreme wildlife habitats. Each environment features meticulous attention to detail, including massive hand-painted murals, native foliage and special effects that deliver the chill of the Arctic and the dry sun of the African Savanna.

Inspired by Johnny Morris' lifetime spent in nature and his deep admiration for fellow hunter and angler conservationists, the Wildlife Galleries educate visitors on the importance of wildlife habitats and management.

Pro Tip! We recommend starting your visit at the Wildlife Galleries for the most immersive and comprehensive experience. This also provides a natural transition into the Aquarium. The entrance to the Wildlife Galleries is located inside Bass Pro Shops.
