They have great exhibits, and the facilities are quite nice. Many examples of animals, and a lot of history. Also, exhibits of some amazing firearms.

We were passing through Missoula during our trip and decided to visit this place; great decision! The museum was great! Lot's of stuffed wild animals (bear, eagle, deer, swan, ...) and nice displays; I mean, I've never touched a skunk or seen a bear footprint before! It was lot's of fun for us and little toddler and would definitely recommend... More

Lots of stuffed wildlife.Educational displays of various wildlife not just elk.Sad how we kiiled so many animals when we overtook the west. Get your picture taken with a stuffed bear.gives you an idea of how big they are.No fee so give a donation instead.

Whether you are a hunter or just enjoy nature, you will like going to the RMEF museum. Admission was free, but you can make a donation, which was a no-brainer since they do such good work. They have Elk and other animals on display and videos and short features showing their work and Elk in the wild. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

The staff inside is very helpful. There is a movie of how and where they are trying to help and save the elks. Also a wonderful display of animals. Well worth a visit.

My first visit to Montana was also my first time seeing an elk, Live! I had no idea about their size and the mass of their antlers. This is one big animal! The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation seeks to keep this majestic animal healthy and alive for all to enjoy as they are an incredible animal. The foundation is open... More

If you want to know about elk and elk habitat, this is the place to go. There are trophy elk on display and an excellent film about hunting elk. We didn't realize there was such an organization dedicated to preserving and increasing elk habitat in the USA. I would have liked to see more shirts, hats and items without the... More

Expensive clothing, but for a worthwhile cause and they are different looking. Informative about the animals and their habitat.

Cool place, I was actually convinced to go here via tripadvisor which is funny. I am not from a place that has a lot of elk nor do I know anything about them, until I visited the Elk Foundation. Great place and very informative. Nice people and a great attraction to visit for anyone of all ages I would say!

This was a delightful little surprise that our friends recommended. Considering that there's no entrance fee, this lovely little place has a terrific indoor display that kept the young toddler in our group amused longer than we expected. The shaded, paved walk was perfect for me in my wheelchair, and even though we didn't see any elk, the plants, trees... More
