It is in a beautiful setting just outside of Jackson across from the elk reserve. We throughly enjoyed our time. We spent about 3 hours and looked at each piece of art and listened... More

Absolutely some of the best art you will ever see. Some very old pieces. You can miss it if you are not looking for the entrance. Would do it again but spend more time.

We saw this museum on the way out of town and turned around after seeing the beautiful wildlife sculptures on the grounds. There were hundreds of examples of Western wildlife art inside. We enjoyed our visit and are glad we made that u-turn.

The building is stunning - amazing architecture! The art collection outstanding... it's a must while visiting Jackson. Restaurant is great also with magnificent views. In summer, try riding your bike there from Jackson Visitors Center
