We thoroughly enjoyed this museum; a large selection of wildlife art. We did a tour with one of the docents and she was great; pointed out things I wouldn't have gotten on my own. A perfect museum for this part of the country.

even if you don't have time to tour the entire museum, stop by to see all the bronze statues in the outside gardens and grab lunch! Great spot for kids and adults...

The National Museum of Wildlife Art is a great place to spend an afternoon. We thought that we'd go in for a quick 30-45 minute look, and ended up hanging around for more than two hours. The museum provides a great history of wildlife art spanning many centuries. Additionally, the museum is very convenient, as it sits directly in between... More

Carl Runguis is my new(old) favorite wildlife artist! What an array of sculpture & paintings on the grounds & in building of this museum which was built to resemble a Scottish castle. AMAZING collection of Chinese Zodiac animals outside in bronze. Incredible collection of paintings inside! We loved this place!

A wonderful collection of wildlife art. Even though it is not the theme of art we collect, the manner in which it is displayed, it was a great learning experience.

We had only a few hours to spend here but it was so worth it. The art work was incredible; the staff very helpful. The museum itself is just a great way to learn about wildlife in Wyoming.

Beautiful museum. We could see the unusual architecture as we drove by. After a few trips by we decided to stop and go in. It was $14.00 per adult and it was worth it for us. The bronze sculptures outside are fabulous and you can walk right up to them and take pictures. Inside is a very clean and spacious... More

From the drive up, to the building itself, to the outside sculptures, and to the exhibits themselves, this museum is well worth your time. And, the cafe is very good to boot! Highly recommended!
