Reviewed August 21, 2011

went with my grandkids, one in a stroller, size is manageable for all ages, we all were able to see the wolves and bears close up, something we didn't do in Yellowstone, learned all about them, we all enjoyed the exhibits, and the information. will definitely go again.

“Great fun and educational”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

My children loved seeing the grizzly bears look for food under rocks. Seeing grizzlies so close up is a rare treat. The museum portion is very educational. We enjoyed the hands on exhibits. I would add it to my must see list if you have a family with young children. Plus your tickets are good for two days. A great place in West Yellowstone.

“Great for little kids but not for adults or older kids”
Reviewed August 17, 2011

Two enclosures. Kids were bored in 5 minutes. It's designed for little kids or armchair biologists that want to sit and watch the bears or wolves in the enclosures all day. It's not nature. There were lots of crows scavenging the bears meals...that was a bonus. That's pretty much it....very expensive to get it and kept hearing people say "this is it?"

“Loved it!”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

Small unpretensious centre for the celebration and preservation of these two great species.
Not a zoo, but the animals here could not now survive in the wild.Thus, giving us urbanites a chance these animals close up. Well done
