We went as small group of young seniors but all age groups were present and able to view live animals and indoor displays; Easy to read and interactive. Admission allows you to visit again on next day. Very enjoyable!

Great place to be educated on Grizzlies and Wolves that you might or might not see in Yellowstone. Worth a visit if you have kids and want to not leave the area without seeing wolves and bears. The bird exhibit was nice as well. Worth a visit.

We were looking forward to this exhibit. 65 bucks later, 2 sad bears and 4 super sad sleeping wolves we wished we would have saved our money. There are a few eagles and a buzzard that can't fly in cages as well. Save your money and watch the national geographic channel.

My husband and I loved everything about this place! The exhibits were planned and executed beautifully. There are interactive exhibits for adults and kids teaching how humans and bears interact and what to do if you encounter a bear besides informative displays on black and grizzly bears. We had fun wandering through Living with Bears on Easy Street and the... More

An important center for study of bears and wolves. Is good for an hour and half of visit and you do get to see the animals up close.

The center offers great viewing and photo opportunities along with informative staff and displays. The animals are well cared for, and the staff take great pride in the work they do. Be sure to stay for the animal enrichment sessions. The staff hide food, etc for the animals to find, then let them out to hunt. The "Montana Grizzlies" are... More

The animals on display are treated as important gests at the facility and it is clear that the staff genuinely love thier animals. The wolves can be viewed from the pathways or for a view without fences there is a building with glass walls located between the two enclosures. The centre also features a number of Bears (5 were on... More

We did not see a bear in Yellowstone so we stopped at the Grizzly and Wold Center. It was neat to see them hide the food and then release the bears. We enjoyed hearing the story behind the acquisition of each bear. They really are helping to rescue the bears. All the inhabitants are at the Center because they have... More

We visited the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in July 2016. I enjoyed seeing the wolves and bears. They have many bears that they alternate daily. The bear enclosure is nicely done. There is a large moat and electric fence which allows the visitors to have a clear close view of these giants. One of the most exciting things I... More
