National Museum of Wildlife Art
The museum is unique among American art museums, distinguished by its mission and location. With collections of nearly 4,000 works of art, the museum strives to enrich and inspire public appreciation of fine art and humanity's relationship with nature by focusing its exhibitions and programs on wildlife. Situated on a butte in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the museum overlooks the 20,000-acre National Elk Refuge and is on route to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.
If you love wildlife, or if you love art, you should go. If you love both, like me, you'll absolutely love it. The collection is beautiful and well presented. There's a stunning Rungius gallery, some Warhol pieces, and more. I love that one of the gallery is dedicated to raise awareness about the animal trade. The building and its location are well worth a stop even if you don't go in. Just go!

Absolutely outstanding! I could spend three days here. Painting, drawing, sculpture from abstract to realism. The Andy Warhol exhibit had more depth than I expected. Lovely lunch at the restaurant, Palate.
From Pablo Picasso to Charles Russell, if you enjoy wildlife art then you will be glad you paid this place a visit. Take a stroll outside overlooking the National Elk Refuge while you immerse yourself in life-size sculptures or walk the halls to view amazing works like "Chief" by Robert Bateman.
Beautiful art but very stingy people.. they wouldn't even let us carry our diaper bag around in the bottom of the stroller .. not touching any statues either.. even if they are metal..
A gem. Fantastic works of art on international level. Beautiful setting. Interesting architecture and sculpture garden. Worth spending several good hours.
