Awesome stop

First off, let me start out by saying it was way more than expected. Walking into the building you could see tracks in the concrete and painted paw, hoof prints everywhere. They... read more

First off, let me start out by saying it was way more than expected. Walking into the building you could see tracks in the concrete and painted paw, hoof prints everywhere. They had skulls and bones as well as many taxidermy animals. When we headed out back, automatically you could see bears and wolves. They were playing in the water... More

There are outdoor habitats of raptors, grizzlies, and wolves. The guide was very informative and answered questions well. The indoor exhibits were also great. Very reasonably priced too. We highly recommend it!

We came here with friends while we were in West Yellowstone, Montana. This place is a fun and informative place to go to learn about bears and wolves. You can get pretty close to them. And, they're not sleeping like they are in Zoos. They are out and about looking for food and seeing what they can smell. They're a... More

This is a worthwhile stop on your Yellowstone vacation, especially if you have youngsters with you. They're in the process of adding new exhibits, so if you go early this season, be aware that there's construction going on. It doesn't detract from the bear & wolf habitats.

This is a very nice facility accredited by the Zoos and Aquariums Association. We were there when the keepers did some enrichment activities for the bears and the wolves. It was really fun to watch the animals' behavior. After eating, the bears started to play and wrestle with each other for quite awhile, including playing in the water. We got... More

The movies were very good. it was a good alternative to see bears if you do not see any in the park. luckily, for our group we saw nine bears inside the park during our four days there.

This is a a well laid out place. Very informative and interesting. It was nice to be able to see the Grizzlies up close as well as the wolves and birds. Great place to learn more about these animals.

The knowledge of the staff was amazing. I've been here three times. we enjoyed every bit of it. The animals look to be taken care of very well. They try to give them each a treat and you get to see them forage for the food in their habitat.

Went here this morning, loved seeing the beautiful grizzlies and the wolves. Also listened to a talk from one of the staff on "birds of prey". All very informative and interesting. Seeing these bears up this close was a highlight. Nice clean place to learn about these animals

This is a MUST do! It's a very small sanctuary so you get up close to the animals. Love the Grizzlies!! They do enrichments with the bears throughout the day. They do the same with the wolves too. Your admission gets you in for two consecutive days. The gift shop has great finds and I felt good about my purchases... More
