Also, we have the second largest puzzle in the world on display now! 

“Wildlife” was designed and illustrated by Adrian Chesterman and published by Educa Borras in Barcelona, Spain. The puzzle took 8 months to assemble and was done by Joseph Treschel.  He is currently working on “Around the World”, the world’s largest puzzle at 42,000 pieces which will be donated to the International Wildlife Museum when he’s finished later this year. “Wildlife” is 33,600 pieces and measures 19 feet long by 6.5 feet tall. It features dozens of species from rainforests and savannahs.
