What a nice place to visit. Beautiful mounts in a number of settings. Fair number of interactive booths in a short tour. If you are a member you should definitely visit. If you are a hunter, even from the east, you should be a member.

A very nice, family friendly stop if you're passing through Missoula. Close to the freeway. Definitely worth the stop. The museum and nature walk are well done and informative and it's Free.

Took 4 school-age kids here and they really enjoyed the interactive features of the RMEF - the center is done very well and is educational as well as hands-on fun learning.

Very pleasant surprise. Wasn't sure exactly what to expect but as a hunter and outdoorsman I was curious. Wife and 2 kids, 13 and 15, along as well. Free admission(donation asked for). Some really neat educational/informational displays worth it for all. Excellent examples of taxidermy. An entire wall of various trophy mounts along one wall is very impressive. Really a... More

Enjoyed seeing all the animals at the RMEF, it was great to see things up close that I've seen in the wild. Definitely recommend stopping by if you're in Missoula.

Whether you hunt elk or not or even if you don't know what an elk is, this is worth the stop. They have excellent family friendly displays, along with a very nice gift shop and a collection of remarkable heads. Located just a few blocks north of the Interstate, it is in a peaceful setting. A great place to stretch... More

This is located right next to the C'Mon Inn, so we walked to it. It is very informative and interesting including a walk around the grounds.
