|About these ratings|
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 in West Yellowstone, Montana, this non-profit center offers a detailed history of bears and wolves in the Yellowstone area and insight into conservation tactics. However, most recent visitors agree it's the center's surrounding area that's the best part: there you'll find several habitats housing live bears and wolves, plus large viewing areas for you to get a good look.
The Grizzly Wolf & Discovery Center is located just a few miles from the West Entrance of Yellowstone National Park. There is a moderate admission fee to enter, anytime from 8:30 a.m. to sundown (around 8:30 p.m. in the summer). For more information, check out the center's website.
