Crews renovating Bass Pro Shops’ Wonders of Wildlife facility have entered the final stretch ahead of a projected mid-2016 debut.

The facility, to be called America’s Wildlife Museum and Aquarium, has been closed for years to allow time for the massive project that will triple its original size. Visitors next year will view aquatic life in aquariums totaling more than 1 million gallons, countless taxidermied wild animals and several interactive exhibits.
