“What a surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

I am clearly not a museum person, but the National Museum of Wildlife Art may have changed my mind. Museums usually bore me, but the collection of wildlife art at this museum was just enough to keep me occupied for a very enjoyable 90 minutes. The building itself is a work of art, and the displays are arranged in a logical fashion and are not overwhelming nor do they try to be ultra sophisticated nor formal.

Add to this the fact that we found discount coupons in the local paper, and coupled with a senior discount, I consider this $8 (each) very well spent money.

“Great museum surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

This place is worth a visit just for the architecture - add in a great collection of art, superb views, a nice cafe, friendly and helpful staff, and you just cant go wrong. I wasn't sure what to expect, but after visiting, we had a great time...and this was with teenagers! The artwork is stunning. This is a truly world-class museum, and a hidden gem in Jackson. I would strongly recommend for anyone visiting to take a couple of hours to visit this fantastic art gallery.

Located just north of downtown Jackson, across from the elk refuge, the museum offers a wonderful look at all types of wildlife. We really enjoyed our last visit.

“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

Unbeleivable stone architecture. Had lunch at the cafe before checking out the art gallery what a deal. The best part, a free to/from shuttle from dt Jackson.
