  • Beautiful elk statue outside, many amazing stuffed critters inside, a movie room that always has something educational going. The atmosphere is great, quiet, museum-like. Their bathrooms are even amazing and they have a wonderful trail to walk that starts at the side of the building. You always see some wildlife when walking it. Wild turkeys and deer mostly.
  • If you are driving through Missoula you should definitely stop and educate yourself on the elk population in North America. Excellent conservation group.
  • Awesome. Fun for all ages. Educational. Super friendly and very accommodating. I could of spent hours more here but unfortunately was rushed to get back on the road. Will be back on the next trip and will continue to be amazed at all the information and cool things to see.
  • Great museum with very interesting elk mounts. Very informative, a great stop while traveling and a can’t miss if you over night in Missoula!
  • Probably the best 'free' attractipn in the area. Very informative and well done!
