This was worth the money to see wildlife up close. We went back twice. Bears are fascinating to watch.

This is a great place to learn about the indigenous species of wild animals in the area. The bald eagles are a very welcome addition also! Great to observe the habits of the wolves and bears. These animals have all been saved and do well in captivity. The staff here is are very informative and do well relating to the... More

Two of the most elusive animals of Yellowstone are its wolves and grizzly bears. Here at the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center they are prominently displayed in a most natural setting where they have room to roam. The Discovery Center entrance fee allows you two day visits which is great if you tour Yellowstone and then want to see some... More

The staff are friendly and enthusiastic. The two grizzlies on display looked magnificently bored. The two wolves were edgy and restless in their small enclosure. Educational materials were informative and well displayed. You may like it if you haven't seen wolves and grizzlies close-up.

This is an excellent facility with very educational exhibits and a cadre of grizzly bears, wolves and birds of pray who have been rescued from the wild due to injuries or behavioral issues. It is not a zoo or a cheesy for-profit snake pit. An hour or two well spent!

We didn't allow enough time for this attraction. The guide was so informative. The bears co-operative. Love the way they really care for the animals. Thoroughly enjoyed our time. You need to allow at least 1/2 day to learn and enjoy.

I am a bit late in reviewing this place. My kids (age 12 and 15) and I were out visiting Yellowstone National Park over July 4th week. After spending 5 days inside the park, I decided to spend a couple days outside in West Yellowstone. We visited this discovery center. To be honest, my expectation was low since we've just... More

Great place to receive information on bears and wolves. These animals are very seldom seen in the wild by most tourists so is a good opportunity to see them.
