A must stop when traveling to Yellowstone NP. Great way to educate yourself or family before heading into the park. Children get to place food out for the bears. See the docile wolves become active in a natural habitat. Learn about the difference between a Grizzly and Black bears. Do you know ? Did you know about the Karelian Bear... More

We thought this might be just a quick really amount to nothing attraction but were we wrong. We spent a considerable amount of time at the not for profit business. This place makes a persons heart warm with appreciation for the work they do. It is really worth while visiting. Very educational and enjoyable for all ages. Very reasonably priced... More

We visited the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center a few days ago- My children were so excited to see these particular animals in real life. The center has a good program for the animals who need to be in captivity for different reasons. We saw grizzlys, wolves and Eagles to say the least!

Bears, wolves, birds of prey, and those cute ground squirells in the 2 day old display area. We didnt feel crowded even though there was > 75 peop-le there. We enjoyed seeing the results of the container tetsing where food is put inside ceratin "bear proof" containers, and the bears get to open the container up if they can.

This is the perfect way to be SURE you get to see grizzlies and wolves during your trip to Yellowstone. And you can see them up close without worrying about being mauled. I went with my family (kids are 11, 13 and 20). Tickets are for 2 days so we came 3 times- early afternoon, in the evening and first... More

You walk in to a museum area, films ongoing. Then outside you are upclose and personal with several rescued bears, wolves, and raptors. The setting is rustic and well kept. Great for kids very informative re animal safety and much hands on classes on environmental issues .

I'm torn between being sad that the animals are in captivity, and happy that they are safe and available for people to see. The bears would most likely have been euthanized were they not rescued and taken in by the Center, and they are beautiful, captivating creatures. I've gotten some great photos of the wolves, which would not have been... More

Animals are housed in very large and well built enclosures. The staff are extremely courteous and helpful. The grounds were immaculate when we visited the center.

Seeing a bear in the wild is the ideal, but you can drive a lot in Yellowstone and still not see one. This is a fun way to see bears up close. Kids can also get a chance to go into the enclosure and plant food for the bears to eat when they return (but places are limited so get... More
