Loved being able to get up close to the grizzlies and bears. Will be going back again tomorrow to try and see even more. It was cold and snowing while we were there but the place is well laid out for the animals and visitors alike!

My wife and I stopped in here while visiting the area, we were glad we did. The up close encounter with the bears and wolves was such a wonderful experience. The children that were visiting at that time were elated with the goings on. The educational segments were very rewarding. If you are near Yellowstone Park the Discovery Center a look.

We toured as a family on our last day in town. Even during the winter, there were active bears (they alternate them throughout the day), and the two wolf enclosures give you a great up close view of the seven wolves. Also impressed with both indoor exhibits that detail the Yellowstone natural wildlife. We watched both the video in the wolfe exhibit, and the movie in the bear theater - the kids were completely enthralled (10 & 15 - not big nature buffs typically). Was a great family experience - glad to see the admission goes to a nonprofit that's work expands beyond the exhibit walls too!

My kids had so much fun, they don't even KNOW how much they learned! This was a wonderful way to educate ourselves before our trip to the park and it made our wildlife photo shots of wolves and bears in the park even more exciting and special! This is absolutely worth a few hours before or after you go to the park and you'll really enjoy the documentary on the journey of the Yellowstone wolf packs. We loved it so much, we bought the DVD.

Really enjoyed the Grizzy Wolf discovery center for what it was. It's not a zoo, there's no petting the animals, but you learn a lot about the nature of the bears and the wolf packs in the park as well as in the center. Really liked that they give a 2 day pass and you can come and go as you please. The first time we went in the snow started coming down like you wouldn't believe, so it was nice to not have the stress of having to " get it all in " at that time. The only thing I would've liked to see was the birds of prey, that area was closed for the winter... Not quite sure where they were:(. We got some great pictures of the wolves and bears:)
