Displays were great - touch various animal pelts & talk to rangers, who helped us identify the birds we saw. Great gift shop

“For anybody who loves nature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

I went there with my teenage kids, and they loved it. For a reason, they were compelled to leave their Ipods for the magnificent views of nature and these beautiful animals

“Great to drive through!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

I saw two Antelope on the side of the road during June. If you go in winter you can see herd of Elk roaming in the pastures. Absolutely beautiful.

“Beautiful information center.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Located right on the edge of the Elk Reserve, this is as much a museum as it is a welcome center. Every year, some 7,000 elk come down from the high mountains to winter in Jackson Hole. There are sleigh rides in the winter that take you right in to the herds.

“Love this area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Saw elk, buffalo, antelope and a lone wolf. Enjoyed the visitor center and its displays. My little girl loved the stuffed elk, being able to touch things, look at the animals.
