What was once a jumbled catch-all for the hunting trophies of Dr. E. A. Weinheimer, and a generous donation from Steve McManus, has been streamlined into a collection of well-organized exhibits at the El Campo Museum of Natural History. They feature these trophies along with others in realistic replicas of their original habitats.
- Size: nine exhibits focusing on natural history and featuring over 100 hunting trophies from as close as south Texas to as far flung as the Arctic
- Eye Catcher: the Arctic room's 8-foot-tall polar bear towers over guests and tries to steal their hats without detection
- Don't Miss: the colorful seashells collection, with 600 different species from all over the world
- Just for Kids: in the Children's Discovery Center, little ones can play at being a vet by throwing on a lab coat and attending to a tiger patient
