“elk refuge”(156 reviews)
From the outside, this museum looks like a natural rock outcropping; inside this building lies some of the world's finest wildlife art.

This museum is very interesting. It has replicas of all the wild life and some animals that were once alive- or at least they are realistic enough to make you think so. It is informative. and fun

Give yourself a minimum of 2 hours, make that 3. Take your time and look. Then move closer and look again. I found the whole experience delightful. Currently they are featuring a wildlife photographer whose work is mind-blowing!More

Very enjoyable experience. The exhibits are great; the outdoor sculpture trail is a highlight. The museum itself is beautiful, complementing the landscape, and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's easy to reach since it's right there on the road from the airport to Jackson.

I love art and art museums. I particularly like them when they are well curated with all types of art and a manageable size. This museum had paintings that were unusual in their subject presentation, as well as classically painted more familiar subjects. The art...More

It was $14 for adults. $12 for seniors. Less for children. No AAA discount, but it was still worth every dollar, in my opinion.

I believe the snow coach to Old Faithful has to be an overnight (at least it was in the past from Flagg Ranch). It came in w/the morning people, dropped them off, and picked up the people heading in for the evening. Its a long couple of hours and you arrive late afternoon so its almost worthwhile spending two nights so you have time to explore.
