Set the tone for a return visit to Jackson Hole by stopping at the Museum before you leave town. The view combined with the fantsctic art collection will leave an indelible impression of the true west. Hint it is a locals favorite for out of town guest. Need I say more?

Loved the animal art! There was all types of art on display and many artists. Very affordable and easy to get to via the city bus if you don't have a car.

I've driven past this museum/gallery many times on different trips to Jackson Hole... This time I went inside. What a tremendous collection of wildlife art. Truly awe inspiring. Take the time to visit - you wont be sorry.

This is a nice place to take a break from skiing, and there is a free shuttle from the town to get there. It is located across from the Elk Refuge a bit outside of town.

We took a one day break from skiing to give our muscles a rest and explored this art museum. It was very enjoyable - the exterior architecture is very nice and the collection of wildlife themed art is impressive and enjoyable to view. Be sure to walk around the grounds and view the wildlife sculptures. The moose, bison and elk... More

The museum has a wonderful collection of wildlife art - not to be missed. We were fortunate in that we had a private viewing of the museum for our tour group as well as a dinner. Highly recommend

The extensive art collection is spectacular. Allow at least a half-day to do it justice. The gift shop has lots of nice items for sale.

The museum is in a beautiful building tucked into the hillside across from the Elk Refuge. They have a great collection of wildlife and nature art. I was impressed at the age and preservation of many pieces. They have been artfully arranged and the museum has a good flow. Great views out onto the Elk Refuge as well. Great place... More

The National Museum of Wildlife Art is a world-class treasure for the town of Jackson. The museum has an amazing standing collection and brings the best in wildlife art from around the world. The special events alone are worth the price of an annual pass. Don't miss the Wild Sage Cafe for a very special meal overlooking the wildlife of... More

Beautiful sculptures, magnificent paintings, artifacts, and photos. We spent much more time there than we expected, and well worth the visit. The gift shop was great, too. I found a beautiful...
