This museum is beautiful. It was a wonderful collection of wildlife art. What I mainly liked about the museum is that it wasn't too overwhelming, you could take in every exhibit equally and not skip anything because of burnout. There are exhibits on both North American as well as international wildlife. I learned some interesting facts about how wildlife is... More

We had a wonderful visit to the museum. Very nice artwork dating from many eras. Didn't take a ton of time to go through. Very peaceful! A must if you are in the Teton area.

Beautiful museum just a few miles outside Jackson. We rode the free START bus from downtown and received a discount on our admission tickets to the museum. Lovely art inside a beautiful facility. We also were impressed with all the outdoor sculpture of animals on the property. The setting is also spectacular with views down to the National Elk Refuge... More

For the small area of Jackson this is a world class museum. It is wildlife art, but the variety of art styles will intrigue most visitors. The café is very good and the view spectacular. The gift shop promotes the area and art very well with quality items. The museum supports many special shows and events which are well planned... More

This is a first class museum, especially with a tour guide (docent?) The art is varied, but primarily paintings and sculpture. The building is lovely and modern and the gift shop is "to die for"!!! This is actually a "National " museum. And it should be. The art is based around animals, but some of the artists are from the... More

This is a must see when you are in Jackson. Very worthwhile visit. The structure is up on the hillside and the inside is breath taking. Ai Wei Wei's art was on display, and that in itself is worth the visit.

I thought this was one of the best museums I've visited and could have spent a lot more time there. If I lived in the area, this would be a museum where I would have a membership.

Great way to spend an overly warm afternoon. Give up the shopping and take in a museum. You'll be glad you did.
