  • Truly an amazing place!!👍🏽 If you're at all into hunting definitely stop in if you're anywhere in the area!! And even if you're not into hunting it would be interesting to....they have lots of mounts and interesting facts about elk....plus they have a movie that shows you what RMEF does and gives you a little taste of hunting!😃👍🏽🏹🦌
  • What a cool place , I could of spent hours here just looking at the mounts and the cool stuff.. if your in the area this is a must do !!
  • Nice place to go for visit. Very interesting displays,nice natural walk too.
  • Outstanding facility and friendly staff. My daughter recently completed Hunters Safety at the Elk Foundation and thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks so much for all you do!
  • We stopped here on our way to Yellowstone and it was worth the 30 minutes we spent walking around. Was neat to hear more about elk habitat and preservation in this area of the world. We were actually blown away by how massive and nice this museum is. Clearly run by some well-funded Hunters.
