Thus, a visit to this museum is more meaningful and knowledgeable, since one can learn the importance of wildlife while roaming around the vast and majestic vicinity of the Corbett Reserve.   The place showcases Corbett's own hunting weapons, his personal belongings, sketches, manuscripts and his hunts from the place. Witness the change of heart of this hunter, who later devoted his life to the study and conservations of the fauna he once killed.
