  • If you haven't been recently...they updated their facility with some new exhibits! If you have never been...stop by for a free, educational experience learning about one of the Rocky Mountain's greatest resources: elk! They have a great selection of activities and friendly staff. Large groups would probably call ahead for a tour!
  • This place is phenomenal! Located right here in beautiful Missoula Montana. It is certainly worth a trip just to check out the history and heritage. You can also see some of the largest elk ever taken with rifle and a bow. What they do for conservation and what they continue to do for elk and public lands is well above par. You should really consider a membership if you enjoy recreating outdoors and or hunting our public lands. Without them I would hate to see what the future of elk and their habitat might look like. I will continue to support them in all they do and will hopefully be able to afford a lifetime membership someday. Thanks for everything!!
