Go Wild – Jackson, Wy

Now celebrating it’s 30th anniversary, the National Museum of Wildlife Art showcases the animal wonders of North America as well as the rest of the world and throughout history (we’re talking 2500 b.c.). Starting in November and running through March, the Museum—nearly camouflaged into its Jackson mountainside—offers its First Sundays Family Program Series. Activities have included live music, snow mazes, and of course, making art. And on any day, kids can explore the Children’s Discovery Hall, Artist’s Studio, and Puppet Theater! A stroll along its outdoor Sculpture Trail is also a must for the whole fam.
