That’s right. The National Wild Turkey Federation’s Winchester Museum is the only museum of its kind in the world. Exhibits are dedicated to the history of wild turkey hunting and conservation in North America, a USDA Forest Service helicopter, wildlife oddities, and regional history. The NWTF was formed in 1973 when there were only an estimated 1.3 million turkeys remaining in the North American wilderness. Today there are more than 7 million. The museum also features a collection of turkey calls and several interactive displays geared toward children. A gift shop offers hunting gear, books, toys and souvenirs. The Museum is open Monday-Friday 8:30am-5pm. There is no charge for admission but donations are welcomed. Located at 770 Augusta Rd, Edgefield, SC 29824. 803-637-3106. www.nwtf.org
