    Fabulous sculptures, exhibits and paintings depicting wildlife. Historical works blend with modern art. Definitely visit this place!

    The place is amazing it was close when we went through but just the statues was beautiful enough to admire. The view from the museum it's amazing

    My wife and I stopped in after a day up in Yellowstone and we both enjoyed the museum. Having been to many art museums, and taken an art history class in college, most museums are far too broad for my taste, but this one has a central theme of wildlife, and while still having multiple styles and mediums of art, kept my attention the whole way through. Beyond the art itself there were many historical installations, a recreation of John Clymer's studio with pages of his reference and methods, Thomas Moran's sketches, and one of my favorites was a step by step piece about how bronze casting works. For kids there is a very interactive kids room, and on the day we went, an area to make paper flowers. Definitely a neat little stop

    We did not pay to enter, so I'm only reviewing the Sculpture Trail. It was underwhelming and not because the sculptures were low quality but because the layout and directions were poor. For example, the Spirit Totems were named differently on the cue card than the placards themselves and this portion wasn't even on the app. Said app was also unclear, scanning the QR Code took you to a website and the instructions did not match the sign with the QR Code. I might go back with my wife but it did not feel conducive to young kids.

    Beautiful permanent display of wildlife art. We were fortunate to catch a local artist exposition while we were here which was an added bonus. Plan for 1.5 - 2 hrs. The only negative was the cafe which was not conducive to grabbing a quick snack. It’s about two miles from the north end of Jackson which lets you have a nice walk along the south western border of the National Elk Refuge.
