We had a rainy day in Jackson during our vacation, and decided to stop in the museum. It was small enough to enjoy, appreciate and learn something new.

We didn't even know this was here, but driving by it caught our attention and we had to go. The building itself is fascinating and unique. Sculptures are spread all over the grounds and can be viewed for free. There's a restaurant, restrooms, free parking. Worth a stop even if you do not go inside.

The National Museum of Art is worth a visit if you go to Jackson Hole. The artwork, history and information available here are amazing. The facility is first-rate, with friendly and helpful staff.

We had been to Jackson a few times, but this was our very first time to visit the museum. We had a wonderful time. If you love wildlife and wildlife art and photography, you really should see this museum. There is one painting by Carl Rungius of a group of elk that captured my attention and I want to go... More

Visited as part of our tour. The café had lovely soup and bread, perfect to warm us after our visit to the Elk reserve. The art was fantastic, and although I had been doubtful about this visit, I was glad to have been there. Amazing wildlife sculptures outside and in!

This gem of the Smithsonian chain of museums is an excellent way to spend several indoor hours in Jackson, Wyoming. Traditional and contemporary vision in western art, from painting to photography, sculpture to architecture featuring wildlife entertained us for hours. We included the museum café and a walk along the outdoor sculpture trail over the looking the pristine southern end... More

You gotta go here when you're in Jackson, unless you have Zero appreciation for art, especially wildlife/wilderness art, which this beautiful, well-laid-out, place specializes in. Friendly, nice, excellent staff.

The BEST WILDLIFE ART that I have ever seen!!! This museum is fantastic in all aspects, the building, quality of art and artist. The bronze pieces outside are awesome as well as the one placed throughout the museum. This is a MUST SEE when in the Jackson area !!
