Natural History Exhibit


The lower level of the Besser Museum is dedicated to our extensive natural history collection.  From exotic animals to local animals like the cougar and wolf, to fish of the Great Lakes, this exhibit has something for everyone.  



Our mission is to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit authentic articles and artifacts of art, history, and science to 

inspire curiosity, foster community pride, and cultivate personal legacy.
