We brought the family to see the Bears. Not much to do around town on the off season but we found the discovery center staid open. Stay a while and watch the bears. The guides where very interesting. They gave the back stories to the bears. The only thing to be aware of is that you will pay about 11 per adult and 8 per kid. This hit my family of 7 kinda hard. But I knew the money was going to a good place and I didnt mind making this payment. Fun gift shop and walking distance to the imax and other shops.

This is an essential stop for families on their way in or out of Yellowstone. In the park, you'll see the bears, "at a distance," here you'll be able to look deep into their eyes. The museum is cool, but get outside to see the bears searching for the food that rangers (and helpers) have hidden in the large Bear World. The wolves? Not quite as exciting as the bears, but worth a look. As are the Prairie Dogs. The "rangers" are helpfull and wise.

This is the only place to see bears in the winter! Small facility doing really good work. We went two days in a row because different bears are out at different times. We also went to a short but informative raptor talk with the cutest saw-whet owl on the planet. This is an organization worth supporting.

Great place to see bears and wolves. We stopped by on the day we arrived in West Yellowstone, which was later in the day and not a lot of time to go into the park. This is a sure way to see bears and wolves.

Impromptu visit today and this was awesome. Took us little over an hour to go thru. Got up close with the wolves and enjoyed watching the grizzlies roll around in the snow. This is a must stop if traveling thru West Yellowstone
