The National Museum of Wildlife Art – Experience the unique environments offered in the Jackson Hole area by looking upon incredible pieces of art that cover all genres, including Explorer Art, Romanticism, Sporting Art, Realism, Impressionism, and Modernism. Perfect for the art lover! And with the Children’s Discovery Gallery full-of interactive exhibits and a puppet theater, kids will love the museum, too.
The National Museum of Wildlife Art offers a collection that exceeds 5,000 items, created by over 500 artists. Although it specializes in 19th and 20th century European and American painting and sculpting, certain pieces date back to 2500 B.C. As the museum’s name indicates, the art is related to wildlife, and particularly the species found in the western United States. So you’re certain to see more than a fair share of works that feature the region’s most popular animals, such as bears, bison, deer, elk, moose, geese, hawks, and eagles.
The 51,000-square foot building houses 14 galleries, as well as the Sculpture Trail, Children’s Discovery Gallery, café, library, and gift shop. Approximately 80,000-90,000 visitors arrive each year to be blown away by the premier collection of wildlife artwork.
Tickets for adults and seniors are $12 and $10, respectively. Admission for children ages five to 18 is $6.
