While our entire family enjoyed the change of pace from the tropical islands where we traditionally have spent our winter holidays to the winter wonderland surrounding Jackson Hole there were moments when my older bones needed a break from the cold. So, while the rest of crew sought the slopes I enjoyed a couple hours in the warm and inviting... More

We went to the museum again today to see a couple of new exhibits and they were great. The Ansel Adams photos from a trip to Yosemite in 1938 with some of his wealthy friends was very interesting. The permanent collection of western art is also very good. We decided to join the museum for an annual membership even though... More

I've been to hundreds of museums, but this one was the best for holding my interest. The way it is laid out and the display of items and info is really, really good! The one section about wildlife was excellent visually and audibly. There are little informative videos throughout, just long enough to give lots of info without boring you!... More

Well worth a visit, you don't need to be an art buff. Knowledgeable friendly staff. A small café which was more than adequate, and a gift shop.

The museum is just as much about the building structure as it is about its contents/purpose. The views are great overlooking the elk preserve. Good gift shop.

the museum has an amazing view of the valley and I enjoyed walking the outside of the museum and looking at the sculptures. The art on the inside is interesting, especially for nature, it's a good museum for the area. Only takes 1-2 hours at the most.

I am an art museum fan and always try and get at least one museum in per trip, so of course we stopped in here when visiting Grand Teton. Our 4 college age kids/family friends were actually quite interested as there was an Ansel Adams exhibit, and an interesting display of photos taken of the same spots in the nearly... More

From the road, you would never know this museum was as awesome as it is. The sculpture outside and inside were amazing. The displays were informative and well laid out. I highly recommend a visit to this museum.
