I enjoyed the size of the museum. I arrived at noon and had lunch at the little café. It was very good and reasonably priced. They I visited the exhibitions. I enjoyed the paintings by Carl Rungius and the current exhibition on Audubon.

On the recommendation of our hosts, we made it a point to see this wonderful museum. Built into the since of a hill the exterior is a bit secluded/understated. But inside is beautiful art, mainly reflecting the West but not exclusively. A wonderful room dedicated to Audubon and his bird paintings. The whole museum is a reminder of our country's... More

I am not fond of spend lots of time in museums. However, the animal sculptures surrounding the museum, the view from the museum, and the building itself made of stone are definitely worth visiting. The interior had a room dedicated to Audubon, and there were two other painters on special display that were very interesting. A great counterpoint to the... More

The art works are mostly wildlife and western scenes and are beautiful. There are also two rooms for children to express themselves in art and dress-up with masks and costumes. The cafe is also a great place to have lunch.

You don't have to be in to art to love this place! From the setting of the building, to the wildlife statues on the grounds, to the interior, it is a beautiful and amazing place!

The museum offers western - bronze, oil's, and other medium. It has a café where you can either lunch or a snack. The patio overlooks the Elk preserve. We go back each time we visit Jackson Hole and are always pleased with the display.

Great place to have lunch, watch for critters and birds and learn more about wildlife art. Saw some paintings that I had seen on loan at other museums. Take your time so much to see. Audio tour is great! There are spotting scopes to find animals in the Elk Sanctuary. Come back as often as possible.

A wonderful collection of wildlife art, sculptures and paintings. If you love wildlife, you will love this museum. Admission is only $12 and comes with a self guided audio tour. The building itself is a work of art, as are the outdoor sculptures. Also, a nice view acroos the National Elk Refuge. You won't be disappointed. You can have a... More

Every time we visit Jackson, Wyoming one of the main things on our agenda is the National Museum of Wildlife Art. The setting up above the Elk Refuge is beautiful in itself, and inside the display of original art never ceases to impress and delight. Be sure and watch their video about the artist Robert Bateman and really look at... More
