Unexpected Museum

My family has been extremely Blessed to have to opportunity to visit some GREAT museums all over the world.  Here are a few that come to mind without prodding:
Field Museum in Chicago
British Museum of Natural History in London
Aviation Museum, Pensacola
American Museum of Natural History, NYC
American Museum of Art, NYC
Cairo Museum
The Terra Cotta Warrior museum in Xian
The Country of Israel

Well, you get the picture...
Our friends wanted to take us to the Safari Museum in... Franklin, TN.  To be honest, it isn't really in Franklin, but about 4 or 5 miles outside Franklin on HWY 64 headed east towards Highlands, NC.

It was astounding!  Go see it if you ever get the chance.  It is essentially the display room of the head of the taxidermy shop, Bill F and his wife.  Here's what you can see:

Mr Bill F greeted us at the door and was obviously a people person.  In all our museum visits, I have discovered that a knowledgeable guide makes all the difference...
Just like in daily life.
