We visited the grizzly and wolf discovery center and spent almost the entire day there! It was so much fun to read about the animals, and to watch them as well. The bear enrichment area was quite a nice area to watch. There were programs for the kids- they got to set up the habitats with food and toys before... More

We spent two days exploring the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. It was bitter cold but they had warming huts and the wolf education center was open to get warm. The kids were able to help feed the grizzly bears one day (for an additional charge). We could have spent more time just watching these animals however it was just... More

We always stop by the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center when we visit Yellowstone! So much to see and learn a the Center. Love watching the Grizzlies and Wolves and learning about them. We could spend a whole day just at the Center taking hundreds of pictures!! A favorite of ours!!

Great in the winter. I was there years ago in the spring. The feeding schedules let you see the animals active. This is a great program.

We were not sure what to expect because no one at our resort in the Teton Village had ever been to the G&W Discovery Center. The drive up was beautiful as we took the Teton Pass over to Idaho & up into Montana. The Tetons look totally different from the Idaho side. The drive up took about 90 minutes but... More

We had a few hours to spend before dinner and thought to check out the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. I'm not sure what I expected, maybe more like a zoo, but it wasn't. The staff naturalists are so knowledgeable, I learned so much about the bears and especially the wolves. You can tell from the way they talk that... More

This is a great place to take your kids to see bear close up. They even get to "feed them". They have wolves there too.

Went on a brutally cold winter's day, it's all outside and we still enjoyed it. Good to see Grizzly's and Wolves up close. Gave you a real appreciation for their size. Great for families with a wide range of ranger talks and staff to educate you.

How does one explain how amazing it is to be feet away from gigantic grizzly bears who are playing with each other just the way kids do? Or what a scary thrill it is to have a huge wolf stare you in the eye, fortunately through a fence or glass enclosure? The rangers were very open to any questions that... More
