Gas Station Taxidermy Museum

An employee at the gas station confirmed by phone the recent closing and loss of this free attraction. This location will no longer be a museum -- they're looking for a restaurant to fill the spot. A few taxidermy pieces may end up at businesses in Keystone. We're keeping our fingers crossed that the poignant gator scene finds a new home!

Tried to visit today and was told that the new owners of the gas station have opted not to keep the exhibit.

We visited last summer -- the main exhibit took up a whole gallery, about a third of the building, and they'd positioned animals among the regular merchandise.

Incredible display of taxidermy animals... in a gas station! Located at the Mobil Station at the junction of Interstate 90 and Hwy 16.
