We spent a couple hours here and learned so much about the elk and it's habitat. The displays are relevant and easy to understand. The provided movie is outstanding and shouldn't be missed..it's truly amazing what a great job the foundation has done in supporting the preservation of the species ...very impressive.

My husband and I visited this site based on a previous review from a non-hunter who said they learned a lot and were impressed with the group's conservation efforts.

Has a nice collection of Bull elk mounts, including the world record holder. Also a nice video playing showing elk in the wild and very educational. Good for about 1-2 hour visit.

First things first, I AM NOT A HUNTER. That being said, RMEF had plenty to teach me and plenty for me to learn. Still not a converted hunter but I certainly now have respect for how RMEF promotes the sport. I love that they are all about making sure the elk population is maintained or even increased. They are trying... More

You get to see some real Boone & Crockett head mounts of some great trophy elk and you can see a mountain lion, beaver, skunk, birds of prey, beaver,... More

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.
