Planning your Event at the Museum

How's this for a perfect setting!

Guests arrive at the National Museum of Wildlife Art and are treated to a private tour of the galleries. Following the tour, the group roams onto the terrace for drinks and one of the most spectacular shows in the West - a Wyoming sunset illuminating the National Elk Refuge, Sleeping Indian and the Gros Ventre mountain range. Finally, an elegant dinner is served in the open, two-story museum lobby which is dominated by a dramatic bronze cougar.

The National Museum of Wildlife Art is pleased to offer several unique spaces which may be rented for private functions. From business conferences in the Member's Lounge, to special presentations in the auditorium, the use of this beautiful facility would be a terrific addition to your Jackson Hole itinerary.
