National Museum of Wildlife Art

The National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson. (Daniel Mayer via Wikipedia)

When you step inside you are greeted by a larger-than-life bronze crouching mountain lion, as if ready to pounce. That’s just the dramatic entrance at the incredible National Museum of Wildlife Art. And it is every bit as advertised, here 2 miles north of Jackson, Wyoming. The National Museum of Wildlife Art is located right across the street from another of Wonder of Wyoming, the National Elk Refuge. The very popular spotting-scopes are in the lobby for viewing the “live” wildlife across the way.

The National Museum of Wildlife Art is a relatively young Wonder, opening in 1994. It’s built from brown Arizona sandstone, with exteriors that blend-in with nearby outcroppings. This is a beautifully-crafted, 51,000 square-foot wonderland for the art lover and wildlife enthusiast. There are a dozen galleries, displaying the works of more than 100 artists. Six galleries contain changing exhibitions of photography, paintings, and sculpture. The exhibit on the American Bison is impressive, and the hands-on Children’s Exhibit is a popular place. There’s a video theater, a 200-seat auditorium, a gift shop, and the Rising Sage Cafe, at the wonderful, National Museum of Wildlife Art.
