Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife Museum and Aquarium—the world’s largest wildlife museum—has won USA Today’s 2017 Best New Attraction contest. The all-new museum, located in Springfield, Mo., gives people of all ages the opportunity to experience an authentic, educational and fun celebration of wildlife conservation.
Created by Bass Pro Shops founder/CEO Johnny Morris, Wonders of Wildlife features a 1.5 million gallon aquarium adventure, showcasing 35,000 live fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds on display, as well as an immersive wildlife museum, which allows visitors to view several record-setting examples of various game species and the conservation efforts that allow each animal to thrive.
“We are honored that Wonders of Wildlife has been voted America’s Number One Best New Attraction,” said Bass Pro Shops founder/CEO Johnny Morris. “This recognition is a tribute to hunters, anglers and conservationists everywhere whose significant contributions have been protecting our nation’s fish and wildlife for generations. We are deeply grateful to all of the remarkably talented artists, craftsmen and women, leading conservation organizations, biologists and other supporters who contributed to the creation of this facility, and to each and every person that voted—thank you!”
