“Nice displays and walking trail”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Stopped here after being recommended by the woman at our motel (we were looking for an indoor activity to do with our boys). It was raining so we headed over to Missoula for some exploring. Very nice displays and lots of mounts. Small theater with a movie playing and a gift shop. Has an outdoor walking trail that goes by the creek.

“Very educational and friendly staff”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

We enjoyed the mounts and learning a little more about elk, their habitat and what the foundation is doing to improve them. Beautiful building.

“A Must See for everyone!”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

Locals and travelers will tell you that this place is terrific. Good place to take the kids, young and old, to see some great elk trophies and learn a bit about elk in the northwest.

“Interesting exhibits and nice gift shop”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

The Elk Foundation is a great place to stop off if you are visiting or just traveling through Missoula. Right off I-90 Reserve St exit (1/4 mile north of the highway, on Grant Creek Road...take the exit, turn north). Well signed.
Contains numerous head mounts of record elk, both typical and atypical antlers. They had some very nicely done videos about elk and habitat, wildlife research, and also some beautiful displays of butterflies, while I was there. Their gift shop is really nice. Besides the typical hats, Tshirts, books, etc, they have a nice selection of knives. Quality displays!!
