    A highly recommended stop to stretch your legs, 1-2 hours. Make sure not to miss the films shown on the work the Foundation is doing, and make sure to support its' good cause.  more »

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!😃👍🏽🏹🦌

    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.
