It's fairly expensive and the wolves just sit around all day and get fat. The most exciting part about the bears is when they feed them. They come out of their cages and wonder for food that has been previously hidden. I would say that it's totally worth it, IF there wasn't a world renowned park right next to it.... More

I was expecting there to be more animals. It was a good size if you have small kids, but make sure you time it around the time they feed the bears. Very fun. The kids get to go in the bear enclosure (while the bears are out, of-course) and hide food for the bears under rocks and logs. Then, when... More

Nice place to visit if you only have an hour or two in West Yellowstone. We stopped here during our vacation to Bill's Island in Island Park. The Bear exhibit was wonderful outside, the wolf exhibit we could not find many of the wolves being active, although it was the middle of the day. The inside museum was great to... More

The entrance fee is minimal, the exhibits are terrific, wolves, birds and grizzlies!! Make sure you check the event times because they show different things at different times, in particular the bear pen, sometimes 1 bear but 20 mins later 4 bears! Really is good for an hour or two and a few good pics !

There was a lot to see and learn, and we took advantage of the free re-entry pass during our week vacation.

The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery is a 'must' for visitors to West Yellowstone. The exhibition centre presents information in a clear and orderly manner. The grounds are very well maintained and you get a really close look at the bears and wolves in as natural a setting as is possible in this sort of 'artificial' setting.

Great value. You can easily stroll around and see wolves, bears, and big birds. The exhibits make it easy to see the animals, and they do things to get them active so it's more entertaining than just seeing them laying around. Although the laying around is nice too. We watched them feed the raptors too. Don't miss the movie in... More

The care taken with the animals in this rescue is phenomenal. We were there when one group of 2 bears exited their grazing area with a group of 3 bears. We didn't want to leave.

This was our first visit to the West Entrance area of Yellowstone, so our first opportunity to stop in here. We could have spent hours more investigating the exhibits, but time constraints dictated. We did make a point to be there at 7 for the wolf feeding. The video playing in one pavilion is fascinating, but graphic for young viewers.... More

Good accurate information on the Grizzly Bears and wolves in the wild and rescue animals at the site. Animals stimulated by food hiding, scent traces, trying to change environment animals encounter. there was a strong message of conservation of habitat, animal safety in the wild on encounters, and factors affecting wild populations. The Kids participated in a feeding program that... More
