WOW!!! Each time I have a chance to go to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation in Missoula, Mt. I take advantage of it. It is so spectacular. They have it all displayed so well. You just keep saying "wow". All the kids are so excited and the adults also. I love it!

We live in Polson, MT but are trying to see more of the areas around us. This is a nice little stop just off the interstate in Missoul, MT and very educational. Also next to along the way is a MacKenzie River Pizza.

Very nice facility. Lots of information on Elk and other animals native to the area. Admission is free as is parking right in front of building. Nice little walking trail near entrance. Flat and easy walking saw some Deer, look for them in shady areas around trees.

I learned a lot about how this foundation has helped many states restore the elk herds to states that had allowed the elk population to disappear. The displays were informative and educational.

I'm an avid hunter and supporter of RMEF so it was neat to see what they do and to see how donating and volunteers help with our elk populations.

We took out of town guests to the visitor center and they enjoyed it very much, as did we. The exhibits allow you to feel skins and antlers, among other activities. It's a great place to take kids.
