This is a very educational experience. Information about bears, wolves, raptors was just awesome. Being able to see the bears, all of them, was very cool..Sam is a huge bear....1100 pounds of grizzly. Also seeing two separate kinds of wolves was awesome too. Inside there is information about different kinds of bears, their habitat and characteristics. A great non-profit facility... More

Get there by 215 and ask for your child to be a kid keeper. They get to go into the bear enclosure and hide food for Sam the grizzly!

We did a quick stop here on our way up from Jackson Hole to Gardiner. It's a nice little center that is very informative and would be great for kids.

We visited the Grizzly and Wolff Discovery Center two times while were in West Yellowstone. It was conveniently right across the street from our hotel (Gray Wolff Inn) so we were able to walk over for our visit, but there is plenty of places to park. You pay $13 per adult for two consecutive day admission, which I thought was... More

Not a very big place, but I like what they are doing. These animals cannot be released due to a number of different reasons. If you want to see wolves and bears up close, go here. And the offer a military discount!

Sam is a 1100 lb 10 foot tall grizzly bear. WOW! They let children in the empty enclosure to hide treats then they let Sam in to find them. It is amazing to watch him move rocks to find treats. The best was when Sam stood up to shake a treat out of the tree. The tree cracked and Sam... More
