We make the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center a part of our itinerary each time we visit Yellowstone! We enjoy reading the history of bears in West Yellowstone. Our kids love the bear feeding times!

Since we didn't see any wolves nor grizzlies in Yellowstone, it was the icing on the cake of a wonderful vacation to see them in captivity

Good exhibit and loved seeing the animals. Has an interesting cell phone tour that you can learn more about each of the animals. We loved seeing the bears and wolves. It is wonderful that they can care for these animals that can't be put back into the wild.

The first day we went later in the day so the wolves were sleeping but the bears were fun to watch. You get two days for the price of one ( $11 for adult admission)so we went back early the next day. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. The bears wrestled and we saw the staff provide new scents and some treats in... More

We will never forget this day! The bears located here are rotated into the enclosure at different times per day. They are given enrichment activities by finding hidden treats. We saw bears playing with each other and throwing bones up in the air then pouncing on them. My sons signed up as "kid keepers" so they could hide treats for... More

We came here on our way out of Yellowstone because we never got to see a bear while there and my husband wanted to. We paid almost $30 for 2 adults and 1 child. There was only 1 bear out (he was the biggest they have so that was neat). The wolves were all sleeping. We were there for maybe... More

The premisses are clean and well run. The animals well cared for. It was recommended to me by a tour bus guide in Yellowstone Park. They have a reputation for being a good organization. So if you dont spot bears and wolves at the park...just outside the west park entrance is the town of West Yellowstone...and the grizzly bear and... More

One of the best activities we did outside of the park. Well organized, knowledgeable staff, FUN FUN FUN! Close up views of the animals was amazing (especially when you aren't lucky enough to see grizzly or wolf in the park!). Great price too!

Take your children to the Grizzly Center. It's worth the trip. Go early enough to sign the children up to feed the bears.
