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!

Excellent displays - beautiful taxidermy even if you dislike taxidermy they were displayed really well. Good to see the work they are doing to preserve elks - magnificent creatures. Staff seemed disinterested though which was a shame.

Basically just a visitor center with some stuffed elks and educational films and a very short hiking trail. No live elk. Nothing wrong just not much to it.

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.
