After attending many conferences and events at the Dixie Convention Center, I finally had the chance to visit the Rosenbruch Wildlife Museum. The museum is located right in the convention center, with easy access to and from I-15. The address is 1835 South Convention Center Drive, St. George, Utah.
When you enter the museum you are given your own individual electronic wand that narrates for you and gives explanations of all of the exhibits. The museum displays wildlife from every continent. There are over 300 animals on display in their wildlife habitat. You go from the savannahs of Africa, to the forest and jungles of South America, to the mountains of Asia and North America. There is also an insect exhibit that just opened recently. There were animals on display that I have never heard of, along with lions, tigers, grizzlies and many others. The museum is huge. When you first see it as you enter I thought it was small. The website states that the museum is 33,000 square feet.
