The wildlife art that was on display was outstanding. A variety of styles with tidbits of information to make you think about the pieces. Very well done.

We always stop by to see what is new. This time it was the zodiac heads. They were really fun to see and we also got a great view of the elk refuge too.

Outstanding paintings, sculptures. Also, a very nice cafe and gift shop. There is a children's section in the museum that my 5 year old loved.
