This is a great museum of wildlife art and pictures. I especially enjoyed the photo exhibit of original photos of Yellowstone and pictures retaken of the same picture showing the changes or lack of changes over a 100 years (?). Be sure to plan to spend at least two hours for your visit to the museum as it is much... More

This will be my third visit to this unique museum. I never tire of the familiar and look forward to the new creative collections and curations. Think beyond oil paintings of animals (which I personally enjoy)! The small gift shop is lovely and the cafe has a good selection of snacks and lunch which you can enjoy outside from a... More

I expected to see art if the western wilderness, but was surprised how many international elements were presented. The experience was further enhanced by knowledgable docents who were eager to share their wide knowledge of the various installations. A must see when visiting the area.

We were glad we took the time to spend time at the museum. So much of the art is very good, but the sculpture is exceptional. Take time to walk the sculpture garden. Got lucky and viewed an Ansel Adams special exhibit. We would return again.

A must see stop just North of Jackson, WY. It is hard to compete with the natural scenery all around you in Jackson Hole, but this museum is worth a visit. Spent time there with two teenagers and they loved it. The building itself is a work of art. Highly recommend to fellow travelers interested in art.

This was not on our original agenda, but we ducked in here on a rainy day and were so happy we did. Great art and helps put the area in perspective. The photos taken from the same vantage point decades apart were fascinating

We went intending to spend a couple of hours and ended up staying for almost 6 hours! If you are at all interested in are of the West, this Museum is for you. While the focus is wildlife, the scope is broad. The interpretation is great and lots of stuff for kids. Had lunch at the Cafe, also very good.
