The staff inside is very helpful. There is a movie of how and where they are trying to help and save the elks. Also a wonderful display of animals. Well worth a visit.

My first visit to Montana was also my first time seeing an elk, Live! I had no idea about their size and the mass of their antlers. This is one big animal! The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation seeks to keep this majestic animal healthy and alive for all to enjoy as they are an incredible animal. The foundation is open... More

If you want to know about elk and elk habitat, this is the place to go. There are trophy elk on display and an excellent film about hunting elk. We didn't realize there was such an organization dedicated to preserving and increasing elk habitat in the USA. I would have liked to see more shirts, hats and items without the... More

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. The shaded, paved walk was perfect for me in my wheelchair, and even though we didn't see any elk, the plants, trees... More

We stopped here while in Missoula for a night and were very impressed with the entire set up of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. 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
