The National Museum of Wildlife Art preserves and exhibits wildlife art. The Museum is located amid a wildlife habitat that overlooks the National Elk Refuge. 

The collection reflects traditional and contemporary realism exhibited in 14 galleries. The Museum has a sculpture trail, children’s discovery gallery, and library.

The Museum’s mission is to collect, interpret, and preserve the highest quality wildlife art while inspiring appreciation and knowledge of humanity’s relationship with nature.

The Museum was founded in 1987, and during 1994, the Museum opened its current facility, which is a 51,000 square foot building with an Idaho quartzite façad.

The Museum has over 5,000 artworks by 550 artists, which include works Auguste Rodin, Picasso, Rembrandt, Archibald Thorburn, Daniel Huntington, Rosa Bonheur, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Andy Warhol.
