After seeing wildlife up close and personal in Yellowstone, this attraction featured two black bears and several wolves in a natural habitat setting; therefore it was nothing special to see. Similar to a very small zoo. The film and the displays inside were very educational. Little playground and full sized teepee that little ones will love. I'd say a 4... More

Well worth the price of admission, plus admission is good for two days. Saw 9 grizzly bears and they were very entertaining, wrestling with each other and just enjoying themselves. It was an educational experience as well. They also had 3 wolf packs and they were fascinating to watch. Hearing them howl does make the hairs stand up on the... More

Super educational, a perfect first stop to learn about bears and wolves before you venture into the park

Just what you would expect from your local zoo. Small enclosures for the size of the animals inhabiting them, injured birds on display named after veterans, information about animals on signs. The posted feeding times is helpful. The video of the Druid wolves was the highlight of this visit. The attempt to re-introduce wolves to Yellowstone is what drew me... More

An extra long afternoon shower caused us to return early from our sightseeing in Yellowstone Park. Remembering Trip Advisor's excellent rating of Wolf and Grizzly Discovery Center we decided to give it a try. The low, mournful howls of the wolves brought us scurrying to their enclosure. Not at all like their howls in movies. Such a thrill to experience.... More

Since, the chances of seeing grizzlies or wolves in the Park, here is you chance to see them up close. This self supporting institution gives you a first hand experience of seeing grizzlies and wolves feeding and interacting! A very informative staff who explain why the animals are there, no longer can live or survived being wild,

Based on previous Tripadvisor comments and ratings,we bought tickets to this attraction. We were not disappointed. We saw bears,wolves,bald eagles,and an owl-all the things we did not see in Yellowstone Nat'l Park.We enjoyed talking to a discovery center expert about the wolves and ravens.We liked the informational signs telling the histories of each bear.

We spent days in Yellowstone and did not see any grizzlies. So we had to go over to Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center to be able to see some grizzlies. Great place for the family. The staff is more informative on where to see other wildlife outside Yellowstone than the Park Rangers. This is a non-profit organization that helps wildlife... More

Spent two days in Yellowstone and never saw a Grizzly. You do your own tour of the park. Watching the Grizzlies and Wolves was amazing. Bears and wolves are behind a fence - you can watch them for hours eating, playing, etc. Your kids will love it and adults will to.

Our second visit in 8 years! They continue to improve and enhance this venue. Glad they are certified for their animal care. A great balance of viewing and preserving the wildlife!
