“Only thing good is knowing money goes to bears and wolves.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Small not at all what was expected. Told you can spend 2 days there we saw and read and played all games and was done in less than 2 hours. Only satisfaction was knowing our money goes to protecting the animals. Huge tourist trap.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Fairly small, somewhat preachy. It is good for about 1-1.5 hr. I'm a little tired of being preached at wherever I go.

There is a cool bear exhibit showing tested bear-proof products and such.

“Touristy, but they do have the animals there”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

It's OK for the kids, but can get expensive. They do have several animals there, like a small zoo, and make a serious effort to take good care of them, as much as is possible under the circumstances. You can see the grizzlies, wolves, foxes, and cougars, and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. You have to enter and exit through the gift shop, though.

“Impressive and educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Great spot for seeing Grizzly Bears (they do not hibernate in winter) and a couple of wolf packs. Great photo opportunity as hard to spot in them Yellowstone itself.
Try to be there at a feeding time as the staff are very informative even if animals not hungry.
