I believe this exhibit is much better in the summer or fall season. Our group of 5 went during February and it was a pretty ho-hum experience. We saw one bear in one large fenced area, one wolf in one area and 2 others in...More

This place is just wonderful and be sure to take the tour. Individuals doing tours are most interesting and highly knowledgeable. Plan to spend some time watching the grizzlies and the wolves. It must be experienced.

The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center is a must see while in West Yellowstone. It's good to know the abandoned animals are in a place where they are taken care of.
