Thinking about taking the kids to Disneyworld?
It’s expensive, but you know the kids enjoy it. Did you know there is a less costly alternative the kids will enjoy and the adults will too?! It is WOW, the Wonders of Wildlife Museum and Aquarium.
WOW recently opened in Springfield, Missouri, immediately adjacent to Bass Pro Shops. A creation of Johnny Morris, the Aquarium and Museum is one of those places to visit that cannot be properly described by the written word.
WOW is not a place you visit, it is a place you experience. Visit once, you immediately realize it is a concept intended for our kids and adults of this century. It appeals to your eyes, ears, and vision to share in the wonder of nature, animals, fish, birds and our human civilization into the future. You will want to return.
Kids of all ages love it. The Aquarium was recently voted the best in the USA, it is spectacular. It is not just one aquarium, there are many aquariums displaying fresh and salt water fish in their natural settings.
You and the kids will find yourselves looking at the aquarium, under the aquarium, over the aquarium and even walk inside an aquarium with live fish all around you. It is an all-day activity. On my recent visit, I never saw one youngster that lost interest. It is a certainly a big “wow” for the kids.
Wonders of Wildlife is dedicated to Johnny Morris’s mother and father who always found the time to take him fishing.
A great family vacation is waiting. Visit Wonders of Wildlife one day in the near future. Visit Bass Pro Shops the next day.
Head down to Branson, Missouri, just a short drive south of Springfield, for family fun at Silver Dollar City and take in many other family attractions.
The best may be a day of fishing on Table Rock Lake or Lake Taneycomo.
A plaque in the Aquarium says “Take a kid fishing, you’ll be glad you did.” Your kids will be glad you found the time to take them fishing.
Springfield, Missouri, is in middle of the Ozarks region, which sits in middle of the continental United States. It is easy travel from any part of the country. Commercial flights are available to Springfield and Branson airports. Driving on I-44 from St. Louis, it is less than 3 hours to a great WOW family experience.
