Spent a great afternoon wandering through this gem of a museum. Had lots of great artwork by Russell, Bierstadt, and Moran. Worth the time spent away from exploring the Tetons.

After having driven by this place a number of times over the years we got a chance to visit with our friends. This is a wonderful place to stop and drink in nature from a different perspective. Both the touring and permanent exhibits provide breathtaking examples of beautiful interpretations of some of the best artwork anywhere. While much of the... More

Entrance fee to the museum is $12. Kind of expensive for what you get to see. You can walk around outside and see really nice sculptures. When you enter the building you can walk around in the lobby and see more very nice sculptures for free. I should have left after that. The museum is pretty much filled with paintings... More

There was an awesome display of various and sundry "objects d' art"... Am I using that right? Statues, paintings, pottery, even a giant vampire bat... And the entrance? Full size moose on the driveway, I was a little confused by the penguins, Wyoming? Penguins? Who knew? But the artists represented a good cross-section of western, modern, realistic; animals, landscapes and... More

Was stunned to see a Picasso sculpture this far off the beaten track. What a treat ! The rest of the museum was all top quality as well.

TSS had mentioned this museum as a real gem. we stopped there on our way to Yellowstone. Planned to spend an hour or two. Spent a half a day in awe. It is so well thought out in contents, structure, and setting. As touristy as Jackson Hole can be this is an island of respect, education and as the name... More

We three adults spent two hours here, enjoying it very much. I was amazed at how old (oldest was from the 1600's) and well preserved the artwork is. There is a fun area for kids to enjoy putting on animal costumes, a book nook, and doing artwork themselves. There is a large room with leather couches to sit on, looking... More

I love art, but I don't have any particular fondness for western American art or wildlife art. I did, however, thoroughly enjoy my visit to the museum as did all five members of my family who were traveling with me. Two hours passed very quickly as we examined the oil paintings, photographs, and sculpture on display. The gift shop and... More
