Great stop to check out RMEF and all the things they are doing to protect and help elk in the country. The employee in the gift shop was very kind and helpful answering all of our questions and putting up with my little ones. Thanks for a great visit!

Cool little museum about Western Montana hunting and conservation. There is a gift shop and none of the items are too expensive. Best of all.... it is FREE unless you want to leave a donation.

I really liked this museum. My mom and I went to visit and spent a while reading through everything. There's things for kids to touch, listen and look at. It's a smaller museum, but as an adult with no kids, I could easily spend a few hours in there.

This is a free, modern exhibit that the whole family will enjoy. Many stuffed animals with explanations of their habitats. Many touch, see and hear exhibits. The foundation's store has plenty of clothing and other branded items for sale. Plan on about one hour for this site. It is worth the time.

The place is amazing. Many many elk heads hang on the wall and there are several full elk body mounts. Additionally there are bufflo and mountain sheep mounts that are very impressive. The facility is large, well lit and clean. Staffers are knowledgable and helpful. Definately worth seeing when staying in or passing through Missoula. And it is just a... More

Very educational self guided tour featuring the Elk, the habitat, history and conservation on the species along with other species living in the same. Entrance fee by donation, very reasonable. Would definitely visit again.

We dropped in and were very impressed with the amount of information and displays in the centre. I am not a hunter so I didn't really like the heads mounted on the walls but realise they are an important part of Elk history... Would recommend to friends and keep up the great work you are doing to preserve the Elk... More

We are visiting the area and decided to stop here and glad we did. Very nicely done with a lot of elk history, very educational for those of us not from elk country. Easily spent an hour reading all the signs, watching the videos and admiring the well stuffed animals. Nice little gift shop too.
