MISSION The mission of the National Museum of Wildlife Art is to collect, display, interpret and preserve the highest-quality North American wildlife art, supplemented by wildlife art found throughout the world. The Museum enriches and inspires appreciation and knowledge of humanity’s relationship with nature. ABOUT THE MUSEUM The National Museum of Wildlife Art, founded in 1987, is a world-class art museum holding more than 5,000 catalogued items representing wild animals from around the world. Featuring prominent artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Robert Kuhn, John James Audubon, and Carl Rungius the unsurpassed permanent collection chronicles much of the history of wildlife in art from 2500 B.C. to the present. Built into the hillside and overlooking the National Elk Refuge, the Museum received designation as the “National Museum of Wildlife Art of the United States” by order of Congress in 2008. Boasting a museum shop, interactive children’s gallery, café and outdoor sculpture trail, the Museum is only two and a half miles north of Jackson Town Square and two miles to the gateway of Grand Teton National Park.
