Educational visit for family with children

Excellent tours run by the owners who truly care about their animals! It is definitely a wonderful side trip from anyone visiting Gloucester/ Rockport or Salem, MA

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Wolf Hollow! We learned a lot about wolves, and their importance to the area. The presentation was about an hour and the presenter kept our attention the whole time. We loved it!

Took our 2 grandsons (4 & 6) to Wolf Hollow last Sunday. It was about 30 degrees and we all loved it! They have a impressive presentation with 6 + active wolves. Warm and cozy gift shop with really reasonably priced items. Great surprise!

Great for anyone who wants to understand these beautiful animals in a habitat that is superior to any zoo. You see how the Alpha males rule the pack up close and personable. Great for any ages.

Wolf Hollow is a wonderful nonprofit wolf sanctuary that gives visitors the opportunity to observe closeup these beautiful animals interact with one another while also raising awareness as to how the public can help protect these threatened species. I highly recommend calling or checking their website ahead on the day of your visit because they are only open on the... More

Wolf Hollow is a different sort of animal attraction. It is very educational and not like your standard zoo experience. There is limited walking and there is really only one type of animal (wolves!). You can walk through an area to look at the wolves but most of your time is spent watching a live demonstration where the Wolf Hollow... More

We had no idea of what to expect when we went to visit Wolf Hollow. We were bring our 9 year old and were a bit worried that she wouldn't find sitting and listening to someone speak about wolves to be as engaging as we would but it was amazing. We were there Sunday, July 19th and I apologize for... More

My husband and I stopped at wolf hollow on our way to Maine. We have always been interested in wolves but only saw them at the Bronx zoo. They are not that close and you don't have a good view. At wolf hollow you get a good look at the wolves and get to learn all about how the pack... More

What a great place for people of all ages. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They entertained us while teaching us so much about the wolves. They welcomed questions and got you up close to the wolves. Highly recommended.

This is a modest venue but unique and educational. There's an enclosed area with about the same square footage as a football field. There's 5 or 6 wolves in this area with a viewing area next to it. A guide gives a great 15 minute presentation as the wolves roam around the area. Where else can you experience this? A... More
