We visited Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center while spending a few days in West Yellowstone. It was approximately $12pp and we felt was worth it. There were 6 wolves, 2 to an enclosure. We made it during feeding time for 2 of the wolves. If the wolves go inside to eat, one of the workers will go into the enclosure... More

Exciting to see the grizzly bears and wolves. The entire staff was great but one bummer tall male that talked about the wolves at the feeding. He seemed impatient and easily agitated with questions. I enjoyed reading all the literature inside the museum. All the gals that worked there were all dedicated to their jobs, friendly and could answer all... More

It was interesting seeing the bears, wolves and indoor exhibits. Dropped in on presentation for small children. Not sure the presenter had her science quite right. I really do not think that small mammals freeze solid when they hibernate - I think that would kill them. Presenter might want to review her notes on that topic. Still a nice experience... More

It was fun to see the bears and wolves searching for food and for the kids to be able to help hide the bear food.

This is a must stop location while in West Yellowstone. Watch the bears and wolves up close and learn more about how they live. It's fun to watch the bears hunt for food, see their personalities and watch them play. A great way to have wild animal encounters and take home positive memories.

This place is well run, very informative and you are able to get a really good view of grizzlies and wolves which you are unlikely to get in the wild without being very lucky (or unlucky!). The staff were very knowledgeable about the animals all of which had been rescued from the wild -for various reasons they can't be released... More

It was good to be up close to five grizzly bears, just a ditch and a little fence separating us. It was fun when they ran a bell and all the bears went out through the back of the enclosure. Then a group of small children entered with two keepers. The kids had to hide the pieces of food they... More
