Lions, tigers, bears and more await visitors to this incredible animal collection. This one of a kind collection features animals ranging from the tiny Dik Dik, an antelope that populates the savannahs of eastern Africa, to the mighty Polar Bear that inhabits the frigid Arctic Circle. Learn about these animals and their native habitats as you explore the gallery. This collection of animals from around the world was donated by William “Bill” Bond, a successful rancher who was instrumental in the establishment of the Red River Valley Museum.
The William A. Bond Collection of Big Game Trophies contains one hundred and thirty-two wild game animals. All but two of these animals were collected by Bill Bond from 1946 to 1987. This is a premier collection and attracts visitors from all over the world.
We have big plans for the Bond Room! Our remodeling project, planned to be finished by December 2020, will bring these animals to life with realistic habitats, interactive exhibits, and a focus on conservation. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see the latest updates!
