We were so pleased we heard of this jewel. We took 2 hours to see most of the art but 3 would be better if you have time to do the outside displays. A wonderful building as well.

Beautiful setting, striking use of landscaping to reduce building impact, a real design success and interesting entrance and lower foyer.Worth entrance fee alone. Outdoor sculptures and art work displayed really interesting and inspiring. Real flavour of great American outdoors and wild life. As not from USA no real knowledge of artists but came away happy that we had visited.

The new sculpture trail at the museum has 12 Zodiac Heads by Ai WeiWei. It is an amazing installation hanging on the edge off a drop-off with the elk refuge and the Gros Ventre Mountains as a backdrop. If you are visiting Jackson Hole between now and October, make sure to see this phenomenal exhibit and everything else at this... More

What a fantastic collection of different artists and media with one single focus - the beauty of nature. It was a relaxing and informative change of pace after a few days of outdoor activities. The café also has a... More

Beautiful paintings, murals, sculptures and more. We happened upon this museum on our way to Grand Tetons Natl Park - it was such a delightful surprise we wondered why it isn't advertised more. Better marketing would surely increase attendance.

We loved this museum. I didn't think we'd need more than an hour to go through, but found myself wanting to stay longer even after two hours! Such beautiful artwork and very well laid out. This is a museum not to be missed.

If you have toddlers and the bad luck to visit town when the weather is bad, give this place a try. They have a beautiful little room for their youngest guests that features a few interactive animal exhibits, lots of books, art supplies and prompts, a huge basket of costumes, and a puppet theatre. I live in Jackson and take... More

The exhibits are beautiful, and exterior is picturesque. I was not overwhelmed, but I was not underwhelmed either. I'd rather spend time outdoors, but if I have to be indoors, this is as nice of a place as any.

Very extensive collection of wildlife art, really impressive, most of the artists are deceased, nice children's exploration area, pretty decent cafe as well. We are not big museum people but would visit this one again:)
