Day 2: National Museum of Wildlife Art
Take a private, docent-guided tour of the National Museum of Wildlife Art, situated on a distinct cliff that overlooks the National Elk Refuge. Spot for wildlife before entering the museum to view selections of the 5,000-piece collection from over 550 artists. Dating from 2500 B.C. to the present, the collection chronicles much of the history of wildlife in art, focusing primarily on European and American painting and sculpture. The collection of American art from the 19th and 20th centuries is particularly strong, recording European exploration of the American West. Many of these works predate photography, making them vital representations of the frontier era in the history of the United States.

This afternoon and evening are at your leisure.
