Tips: We haven’t taken this for a spin yet, but on the first sunday of every month from November to March, area locals are invited to experience a special and unique event where the museum staff hosts various and ever changing activities.

The Wildlife Art Museum is not only an architectural masterpiece in an unbelievable location, it’s also a really fun way to spend a couple hours and learn a lot.  Just tucked away enough to feel the intense openness of the landscape but not too far out of town, it’s worth checking out. The young kids will enjoy peering out the windows and in the galleries at massive animals both real and fake.  The Children’s Discovery room will keep them gleefully distracted for hours with the reading nook, artist studio, animal costumes and more! Every exhibit in the museum has a different theme; sometimes interactive, always neat.  There is something for everyone!  

Wednesdays from 10:30 AM to 11 AM, stop by to enjoy storytime and art making during Fables, Feathers, and Fur.  We had so much fun learning about Wooly Mamoths and then making one ourselves in the Arts and Crafts room.  

If you decide to make a day out your visit, enjoy lunch at Palete.  It’s located inside the museum and boasts a stunning view to pair with your eclectic lunch.  There is a small and simple kids menu. (Veggies, fruit, salad, burgers, pasta, and chicken tenders).  In the warmer months, outdoor seating is a must.
