  The Museum features the largest single collection of wood carvings in the United States, which displays over 4000 pieces. The collection is home to carvings from all over the U.S., Czechoslovakia, Germany, Russia, Japan, Israel, Poland, Bali, Vietnam, and numerous other countries across the globe.

  The Museum features a variety of wood carvings, including animals, birds, people of different nationalities, music boxes, wall hangings, and coconut carvings to name just a few, along with Slim's first carving! There are small pieces carved out of matchsticks to larger pieces that were chainsaw carved, such as the 18' Totem Pole and 15' Uncle Sam that will greet you at the entrance.

  One of the museums biggest attractions is the Caricature Carver's of Americas hand carved, 120 piece, full two ring circus. It is everything you remember a circus to be under the Big Top! Another unique piece to be seen is the detailed carving of the 20-Mule Borax Team, Baby boomers of yesteryear will remember the team that was featured at the start of the TV show "Death Valley Days" hosted by former president Ronald Reagan.

  During the 45 - 60 min. guided tour, you will learn about all the different types of carvings and wood species.

  This privately owned collection has taken owner/artist Stanley "Slim" Maroushek almost 60 of his 67 yrs to collect.

   If you are looking for a special place to visit, this is one that will be enjoyed by all ages!

  Slim of course, will be sure to greet you wearing his cowboy hat and a huge smile!
