After touring through Yellowstone and Teton National Parks for days, we were on our way to Salt Lake City when we passed by this museum off Highway 89. As the driver, what caught my eye first was the enormous buffalo sculpture with several life-size buffalo on a hill above the road. Then, the building itself, a stone fortress amongst the... More

We finally got to visit here on our last day of vacation and are so glad we didn't miss it! Absolutely beautiful art of nationally renowned artists and sculptors, and 5 fine videos to view as well. This would be a great rainy day visit, but deserves visits on ANY day, rain or shine.

The weather was perfect the whole time we were in Jackson, but I am glad we took the time to visit the museum with my husband, our two kids and my mom. Great art work - take some photos with the sculptures outside.

This is a beautiful museum just outside of town, tucked into the mountain side. It's easy to miss it. There is a wonderful collection of modern to historic art in this glorious building. It's worth the visit and a nice place to "regroup" and "relax"

We were going to look at the art here but decided it was not worth the admission price for a family of four. We skipped it!

Holding original paintings by Thomas Moran, the painter who captured some of the first images of Yellowstone in paint as a witness to the vast beauty of the area and thus helping to form what we now know as the National Parks to preserve them for future generations. I would have liked to see less art and more artifacts

If you have any appreciation for wildlife in artwork -- especially in the western National Parks -- you must make this a part of your journey.

This is an outstanding museum. Each summer they have excellent temporary exhibits. This year is no exception with the art of the Tetons being shown.

Very nice to go thru it is kinda small but the works of art are so nice, be sure to say hello to Chief , don't worry you can't miss it (its a bison painting, and very neat, I bought a copy and it is hanging in my bedroom).
