We had a great experience looking at grizzly bears and wolves, upclose and personal. The Center saves these animals and educates the public about these special members of our environment. It is a good value because you get two days for the price of one. I fully recommend this side trip to Yellowstone. Take you camera!!! Great for all age... More

What a great opportunity to photograph the grizzly bears and wolves. Because it was winter that was the only wildlife to see. The museum displays were very informative and the staff was quite friendly. We had to be very careful walking around outside the wildlife enclosures due to several icy spots that weren't treated. I almost fell twice.

This is my second time visiting and it seems to be better than the last time. The displays were well done and informative, the live bird show was a must. They rotate through a large selection of bears about every hour so the longer you stay the more bears you will see. The wolves were largely inactive but were resting... More

During our stay in West Yellowstone we decided to make a visit to the wolf and grizzly center. The gift shop had a great variety of items and awesome art. The staff was informative, friendly, and helpful. Our children participated in the young rangers program. They listened to a little lecture about bears and got to hide the food for... More

This is a place to see the wolves and bears right up close. Habitats are adequate and the animals look well cared for. There are other animals too. A good quick activity.

We were there early in the morning and the naturalist was wonderful educating us about the wolves. He had watched us wandering, stopped and told us about the feeding at 10:15, and invited us in. It was nice to have a personal touch and then to have him take lots of time to educate and answer questions. He was great... More

Very nicely done small discovery center. Bear and wolf exhibits were open during our visit, too cold for raptors to be in their outdoor cages. Great for young kids.

A great opportunity to learn about the Apex Predators in Yellowstone Park! There is heaps of information on Bears and Wolves, and their habitats and history. Plenty of viewing Space if there is quite a few people. National Geographic videos on inside and a museum area to finish off. This is a must see and great way to get up... More

Wow! Great place for kids. We took our grandson there for Keeper Kids where they actually go into a bears habitat and hide food for the bears to find. He had the best time. Very friendly staff and employees. A must do with kids.

This was recommended to me on my trip and I highly recommend this as a priority attraction as well. You will not be disappointed. Very nicely managed and a memorable experience to share later.
