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

Attended the annual RMEF banquet. As always it was a fabulous time raising money for an excellent conservation organization

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.

The museum has wonderful stuffed animals and interesting information. The drive around the park has animals to stop and view. Each time we visited we saw different animals while driving around. Buffalo and deer this trip.

This conservation center/ museum was one of the real surprises of my visit to Missoula. Very interesting history of the elks ranges in the Americas and conservation efforts plus other neat features. on western habitat. Kits will love this as well as adults. Beautiful building design. It can easily eat up an hour or more.

There are some ok hiking trails commected to the interpretive center, but I'd drive a little further afield for some really good (and less crowded) trails in the summer. In the winter, there are no crowds, and the flatter, wider trails here make for easier hiking in wintery conditions. Give yourself 20 minutes to a half hour to poke around... More

I always take visitors here. The museum is free, has wonderful mounts and exhibits to view and comfortable surroundings to relax and take it all in. They also have a nice gift shop for elk related merchandise.

This place was very educational as I did not know that much about the animals of our region. They have beautiful mounts of many varieties of elk and other animals. The staff was friendly and very educational when it came to the animals.

Rocky Mountain Eik Foundation is working for conservation of game and land. I highly recommend for every hunter to join.
