“One of our favorite places”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center was not what we expected when we first visited. We did not visit here during a trip to West Yellowstone years ago because we were concerned that it was too commercialized. Instead, it is a fantastic place to observe rescued bears and wolves. We have now visited twice and both times he naturalists are excellent and very willing to answer your questions. The museum portion of the property has excellent and interesting exhibits. This last visit we donated a couple of containers of spices and raisins for the staff to use for their enrichment program. I will visit the Center anytime I am at West Yellowstone.

“Loved it, learned a lot, nice attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

What a lovely stop on our winter yellowstone tour. We were 6 days in W. Yellowstone and visited on a half day we had free. The park/zoo is very well kept and the displays are very interesting and informative. I was very happy to see when the bears come our they are SUPER happy, playful and foraging for their treats. Usually, in zoos, the bears seem lethargic and depressed, but they were rolling, wrestling and playing which made me smile. The wolves were active and from the viewpoints and visitor center, they seem so close and such an intimate experience. But during the winter, the birds are not available for viewing (wanted to see an eagle up close). But overall a great visit and totally worth the $10 especially when you realize they are a non-profit and really love and care for these animals who might not be alive today if it were not for them.

“close encounters:wolves and grizzly bears”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We spent several hours here. You could watch the animals close -up from the warm areas. We were able to watch several feedings and took many pictures! The museum was also interesting.
