My wife and I went here. It was nice to be able to see some grizzly bears as well as wolves since we did not see any in Yellowstone.

This place was outside, being winter, it was cold. We really enjoyed watching the animals. They also had areas you could hop into to warm up.

Your ticket is good for two days, so we visited both late afternoon the day we arrived and just after opening the next morning. There are warm locations to view the animals. The bears rotate in and out for about 45 minutes a time, but...More

An awesome place to see wildlife up close in a safe setting. It helped us to understand a bit more about the various species around the park. They even have a display of mangled coolers that bears had ‘opened’. There are even multiple Tesla charging...More

The grizzly and wolf discovery center is a wonderful place to visit for all age groups. Being within a couple feet of the beautiful wolves and watching them feed on carcasses is amazing. What can you say about the Grizzly bears. They are simply huge...More

Let's face it, while you'd like to see bears and wolves while you're in Yellowstone, you don't really want to see them face-to-face on a hiking trail. So this is the perfect opportunity to see them (usually orphaned, rescued or rogue animals) in an open...More

We had fun watching the bears play and also watching the big Grizzly who came out later. The wolves were fun to watch and they struck great poses for the camera. There is excellent educational material in the museum.

This place is incredible! Great to see how well these rescued animals are cared for. I loved how they would hide the food so the animals would be able to use their natural instincts to hunt. They were adding new exhibits when we were there...More

The animals are outdoors, yes. But, they have indoor viewing stations. There is a small warming hut where you can watch the bears. And in a different building, a room with huge windows allows you to watch the wolves.
