While the museum was once located in Jackson Hole’s Town Square, it has since outgrown that facility and was moved into a brand new 51,000 sq foot facility. The new top of the line facility enables the National Museum of Wildlife Art to have much larger exhibits and educational programs. Their permanent exhibits contain over 5,000 paintings, sculptures and other works from over 100 different artists. Artists in this permanent collection range from modern artists all the way back to early Native American tribes.
