Early Explorers in the West

Approximately 60 minutes

Students learn about some of the early explorers by viewing a slide show of paintings by John Clymer. These images beautifully show the life of the fur trader as well as scenes from the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Students view John Clymer’s studio in the Museum and look at paintings by explorer-artists such as Karl Bodmer, George Catlin, and Alfred Jacob Miller.

What People Are Saying

We came here in the recommendation of a worker at Yellowstone. The museum itself is beautiful, nestled into the hills outside Jackson. The art is stunning. Some feel almost like photographs. Highly recommended.
