The outdoor sculptures greet you from the highway and up the driveway and give a great indication of what's in store for you. A visit to the museum is truly a great way to honor the wildlife and surrounding natural beauty in a different way from hiking and sightseeing. Explore the viewpoints of others - namely artists - and what... More

We drove by the museum several times while in the area then decided one afternoon to stop and check it out. The museum itself is very unique architecturally, but the highlight is definitely the amazing wildlife works of art. The sculptures and paintings are really outstanding. The museum is very easy to wonder through at your own pace or they... More

I enjoyed visiting the museum, there was nothing not to like about it! We got there just as it opened and it was not crowded. The staff was helpful and informative.

Don't drive by without stopping. Start with all the beautiful outdoor sculptures that have been displayed on the grounds. The treasures inside will delight your eyes and peak your interest in western art.

This museum is well-thought out in every way. The outside is based on a Scottish castle gone a little 20th century. Huge animal sculptures. Inside: there is an audio guide you can use or just look at the quality paintings and sculptures in the galleries. There is a cafe, a children's museum and the whole place is beautifully arranged. A... More

We arrived too late to enter the museum but enjoyed the outdoor sculptures and the views overlooking the elk refuge. So, even if it is closed, drive up to it and have a look around. I wish museums that are close to town would realize that in an area of great beauty and great weather, we want to be out... More

We do not normally spend much time in art galleries but this one is unique. A variety of wildlife art exhibits in different mediums , spacious galleries, interesting notes on the artists and all set in a wonderful setting overlooking the National Elk Refuge. Local artists were at work while we were there and they were very interesting to talk... More

A must when visiting the area. Beautiful exhibits, both permanent and traveling. The museums is on the way to Teton and Yellowstone if coming from Jackson. Can't miss it. Take the time and enjoy the art.

We really liked the beautiful building and quality art work. We did not find an eating area so make sure you have eaten before your visit. The property has an impressive view..
