We took our granddaughter and a senior couple with us to see the bears. We liked watching them find their food. But we really liked watching them play and wrestle around. We didn't see much activity from the wolves though. The museum part was real nice too.

OK these places typically bore me as I am not a Forest Ranger, nor do I strive to be. Not the case here. As I entered I was greeted by two very cute and very welcoming smiles. The girls at the front desk were incredibly helpful and tolerant when I messed up my group's check. Thank you! The tour was... More

I would say this is a worthwhile place to visit. The ticket is actually a two-day pass, allowing for some added flexibility. Children can also sign up to learn more about the animals and to hide food for them. Of course, it is always better to see animals in their natural environment, and that bothered me at first. However, all... More

Our family including 17, 15 and 12 year-olds loved the visit here. FYI ticket was good for two days and bears come out a few at a time according to a schedule. There is a small picnic area out front. We spent just a couple of hours here and were also lucky enough to be there when a siren inspired... More

You get to see a lot of Grizzly and Wolves here and the staff does a great job explaining everything about them. There were also a pair of Bald eagles, a peregrine falcon, and an owl to see. They are very willing to answer your questions, and the grounds are top notch. A must see when in West Yellowstone!

Every time we go to West Yellowstone this is a must visit. They are adding a water area for river otters. Sam is just as big as he was when I first saw him. The wolves are also the best. Keep up the great work!

Dee and Tut at the front desk were very nice and informative. We got there early to sign the kids up for thr "Kids Keeper" program for ages 6-12. The... More

This was like a small zoo with Grizzly Bears and Wolves and nice museum. Saw the largest Grizzly Bear they have, was fun watching him find his food hidden under rocks.

Our grandkids loved hiding food for the bears to find. The displays were interesting; if we hadn't been with kids we could have taken time to read all the information.
