This unique museum perched on a hill opposite the National Elk Refuge asks a provocative question: How do we see the animals that share our world? A series of well-curated galleries then goes about answering it with everything from 19th-century oil paintings of bighorn sheep and grizzlies to a stone sculpture of a sloth as the Madonna. Carl Rungius, the “premier painter of North American wildlife,” dominates one gallery with examples of his work from the late 1800s to the 1940s, but you’ll also find contributions from Georgia O’Keefe, Charles M. Russell, Henri Rousseau, and John Gutzon de la Mothe Borglum (of Mt. Rushmore fame). A children’s gallery lets little ones channel their inspiration through drawings, stuffed animals, and costumes. The museum also houses a small café.
