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.

My 3 kids age 8, 6, and 3 were all engaged in their hands on displays and excited to have things touch and learn about in regards to Elk and other wildlife. Their videos, learning activities... More

The RMEF Visitor Center is on of the best to visit. There is a section for children to explore to learn about elk in the wild. The movie theater is running TEAM ELK video's all day. The shopping done in the gift shop has much to add to your wardrobe while helping RMEF protect the habitat which elk and other... More

We enjoyed the museum and collection of some truly marvelous trophies. For those that don't get to see mounts of this caliber very often this is a must see place. The RMEF does terrific work for preserving lands for the benefit of wildlife.

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation does as it's name proclaims, protecting big game habitate. Any money going into the foundation is used to protect the elk population of the united states and reintroduce elk in states where they used to live

people we met at our campground recommended visiting here. The building is amazing and a lot of work went into making this visitor center informative for people like myself who do not hunt. We also walked around a short nature trail they have along the side of the building.

Good exhibits but since we are not hunters, we were not interested in all the videos and information. I was hoping for some "live" elk and animals but all were stuffed!
