Great museum! Very pretty and informative. Just remember that they are selling a political agenda, and as long as you remember that you will be fine. A nice place to look around.

A beautifully designed building to showcase the great work they are doing for nature! Friendly and knowledgeable staff. No entry fee so it's great for families.

Free to visit the RMEF facility. Learn about historical territory of the elk, labors to reintroduce the elk into habitats and a very nice displays. Facility itself is very attractive and clean; also a small gift shop. There is a 1/2 mile walking trail within its 10 acre lot behind the main facility. Worth the stop!

It was a good place to see for children and adults. There is a nice big screen to watch. Buttons for children to press of the different animals in the area.

I love this place and all the worthwhile things the foundation does. The exhibits are fantastic. Interactive exhibits and specimens of animals are of high quality. Three exhibits that particularly interested me were (1) the location of elk in the past and today (you could go region by region and state by state to see what the foundation has done... More

We always reccommend visitors to our area to be sure and see this. It is great for all ages, and it does wonders to teach about elk, deer and other wildlife. Great exhibits. Especially nice gift shop.

This past Saturday the annual RMEF put on a great time, the dinner was Prime Rib or chicken with all of the sides. Fun was had by all, my 9 year old grand daughter had a blast, she won 2 raffle prizes during the event. Bob and his crew did an outstanding job.

Really interesting place! I visited once years ago but it has really changed since then and for the better! Some great reading material and great information on the foundation and what they stand for. I have always loved elk and found them to be majestic animals. The elk foundation was a fun thing to do while I was in town... More
