Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center
Those who want to learn about Yellowstone wildlife in a more controlled environment should take a break from the park and head to the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center. Located just outside the park's West Entrance in West Yellowstone, Montana, this nonprofit center offers a detailed history of bears and wolves in the Yellowstone area and insight into conservation tactics. It offers a diverse selection of hands-on activities and programs, such as the Keeper Kids program, which gives children the chance to learn about grizzly bear behavior while a naturalist and animal keeper usher them into a bear habitat to observe how bears hunt for food.
Although some previous visitors felt the center was a bit small, most said its habitats housing live bears and wolves and large viewing areas were great. To avoid feeling crammed in the tight space, a few travelers recommend visiting during the park's offseason.
The Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center hours vary by season, but the property always opens at 8:30 a.m. and does not close before 4 p.m. Admissions cost $13 for adults, $12.25 for seniors older than 61 and $8 for kids between 5 and 12. Children 4 and younger get in for free. Complimentary parking is provided, and restrooms, a playground, a gift shop and picnic tables are also available on-site.
