So glad we went

Great Discovery center. So loved seeing the Grizzlies playing, foraging and frolicking in the water up close. Same with wolves, river otters and raptors - great center! Highly recommend!

Nice small center
May 2021 • Family
We stopped in for a visit because we saw a sign for the discovery center and we were pleasantly surprised. It was a nice experience seeing grizzly bears and wolves. You are able to go and come back as you please. Which is nice because they have different bears come out at different times. We wanted to see the biggest grizzly Sam so we left for lunch and came back to see Sam. He is a big beautiful grizzly from Alaska.

It was interesting, but your mask-wearing mandate outside is absurd. Father had vaccine and still had to wear a mask. Follow the science you cult-members.

Our Family had a great time viewing the Bears and Wolves. This is an exceptional opportunity to learn more about the bears and wolves. The staff is very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. Do not miss this when in West Yellowstone.

This was one of the highlights on our visit, after we didn’t see bear or wolves in the park. It was outstanding— the staff clearly care about the animals and are knowledgeable. Animals were all very active. Highly recommend!

A lot of stuff is closed.
May 2021
I’ve been here before and it was much better the last time. We were so disappointed this trip. At the front desk I inquired if the kids program was available as it was the best part of our trip last time. I was told that they were not doing the program for the foreseeable future and I guess I understand with the civic precautions but as we walked outside to see the bears there were at least 20 kids out in the bear area doing the program. I asked another employee about it and if we were lied to at the front desk and they said they were only doing it for school groups. Completely not fair to the regular visitors to have their kids watch other kids having fun.

We also asked if their theater was having showings. They have an indoor and outdoor theater but neither one was working. I asked again way this was closed and they said due to COVID rules they were not opening their indoor theater and the outdoor one was not ready for the year. We left after about 30 minutes and went to the imax next door. They were open so I don’t understand how they can have an indoor theater open but the discovery center can’t. I would not go here until all the COVID restrictions are over. I feel this place is just finding ways to let people down.

What a great place. Animals so well cared for and such a great educational experience to try and save these majestic creatures. The staff is very knowledgeable and they clearly love the animals. I felt like it was affordable as we stayed about three hours for only $36.00. Well worth the money. Go in the AM and make sure to ask about the feeding schedule for the wolves and otters. Very cool

A nice experience but a bit pricey given the number of closed exhibits.

A nice experience but a bit pricey given the number of closed exhibits. We were able to see bears, otters, wolves & squirrels. I think we saw more animals in the park!

Great experience
Mar 2021
Realized that we could not get into Yellowstone because they were closed on or around March 15 to groom roads for spring. Found the Discovery Center and it was great. Were able to see bears, foxes, and otters. Don't expect animal kingdom but it is an inexpensive option that benefits the people who are trying to save these wonderful animals.
