The exhibits are beautiful, and exterior is picturesque. I was not overwhelmed, but I was not underwhelmed either. I'd rather spend time outdoors, but if I have to be indoors, this is as nice of a place as any.

This museum has famous art/artists and a great variety as well! There are fantastic sculptures and the building itself is worth seeing! Cost is about $14 per adult to get in. It is right across from the Elk refuge area which is really neat too. There is a great gift shop and an area to sit on couches and relax.... More

Always changing exhibits. Nice place to have lunch and watch elk during the afternoon, sometimes you can even see a wolf.

This museum was very good. it was much more than we had expected. I hesitate to say a museum was awesome because wildlife art may not be everyone's cup of tea, but if it is, go here. Amazing sculptures are everywhere among the paintings and there is a terrace that overlooks the Elk range with high powered binoculars. a great... More

An amazing and eclectic museum. A must visit if in the area! My entire family (of 4) loved it. They even had a children's play room, although my children were too old to admit they were interested :)

You need to pay $14 per person to really see anything. They have a neat gift shop and another room of paintings you can see for free.

Worth the stop for sure. Be sure to sign up to see the Elk on the Refuge. Take a wagon/sleigh ride through the Elk Refuge if they are there. Awesome up and personal! Great personal working there. Very helpful and nice. Lots of great items in the museum!

Each Wednesday nite an a la carte dinner is served. Simple but good menu but I had to ring them 3 times before I got a confirmation. Art is fabulous and broad ranging.
