National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center

The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center tells the story of Wyoming's premier mountain monarch, the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep. One of the world's largest herds of these majestic wild animals is found in the mountains near Dubois, Wyoming.

The Center features life-size taxidermy mounts and dioramas that recreate the bighorns habitat, interactive exhibits about wildlife management and special adaptations of wild sheep, and films that focus on the bighorn sheep and the Sheepeater Indians. 

From November through March the Center offers guided wildlife viewing tours to the Whiskey Mountain Bighorn Sheep winter range near Dubois. These tours require a minimum of two guests, last 3 - 4 hours and cost $50 per person. Reservations are required 24 hours in advance.

Special programs and rates may be arranged for group visits to the Interpretive Center.

The Center includes a museum store filled with nature and wildlife-themed gifts, books and clothing.
