National Museum of Wildlife Art

Top choice in Jackson

Major works by Bierstadt, Rungius, Remington and Russell breathe life into their subjects in impressive and inspiring ways. The outdoor sculptures and building itself (inspired, oddly, by a ruined Scottish castle) are worth stopping by to see even if the museum is closed.

The discovery gallery has a kids' studio for drawing and print rubbing that adults plainly envy. Check the website for gallery openings, book readings, art classes and events.
