The place was fantastic. The art and taxidermy was something to behold. I would highly recommend anyone going to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to go and visit this site.

Amazing art, views, and food! I can't wait for the next exhibit. Locals should take advantage of free entry the first Sunday of each month!

Our plans changed due to weather and we decided to head to the museum. What a wonderful surprise! We ended up spending well over an hour in the museum viewing some of the most breathtaking nature inspired works of art. Not to be missed the special exhibit of interpretive art of Aesop's fables. Walk towards the end of the museum... More

We drove past the museum on the way into town and decided to pay a visit the next afternoon. The staff are friendly and were very informative. It has a great exhibit of art depicting wildlife in the area.

This has been on my list for awhile and I was glad to finally have the time to see it. There are many worthwhile art paintings and sculptures. It was worth the 1-2 hrs we took to visit.

A lot larger and more extensive than we expected, allow at least 2 hours, cafeteria currently in remodel but should be complete by late spring or summer

Lots of interesting art to see...really liked the sculptures and the staff was very friendly. If you have kids with you there is one painting, was an abstract nude, that surprised us as we walked in the room. Not a prude, however don't feel it was appropriate.

The museum stands remotely on a bute on the way to town facing the planes and magnificent views of the Elk Refuge. The statues of wild life are strategically and with great taste positioned to match the landscaping. Inside the museum there is a lot of beautiful work all inspired by wildlife. Beautiful museum and worth visiting.

Although it is the museum I personally think it would be boring for kids to go there unless they're having a workshop. The artwork is absolutely amazing and also the bronzes and statues that bring Jackson hole to life I recommend it for older adults just because I think children will get bored but it is something to see and...
