Day 8: Jackson / National Museum of Wildlife Art
Saturday, January 22, 2022
Spot for wildlife outside before taking a private, docent-guided tour of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. It's situated on a distinct cliff overlooking the National Elk Refuge. Enter the museum to view selections of the 5,000-piece collection from more than 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. 

Enjoy an artful lunch and inspiring views of the Elk Refuge at the museum restaurant, Palate. The remainder of the day is at your leisure.
