The Interpretive Center is a great place to stop for a few minutes. It doesn't take long (45 min. to an hour) and I learned many interesting facts about Big Horn Sheep and the local environment and efforts to keep the herd healthy and stable. There are some beautiful mounts of sheep from around the world as well as some... More

This is a good museum about long horn sheep. Some excellent exhibits, friendly staff and all for a modest entry fee.

Dubois is a gem of small town, and I would say that the National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center is no exception to the rule. The exhibit of sheep mounts and other wildlife were all very impressive. While the film that is shown is informative, it does come across as a little dated when compared to today's digital capabilities. The staff... More

Beautifully displayed, very educational and very interesting. I wasn't aware of all the different kinds of sheep.

Okay, this is probably more than most folks want to know about sheep but Dubois is a charming town and the people are very friendly and why not take a break for a half hour. You will learn about bighorn sheep and predators and habitats and where you might spot one. While you are there, walk around the town, have... More

The person staffing the place was very pleasant and provides you with a map of the the game management center. She also shows you on the map the latest sheep sightings and how to get there. I wasn't impressed with the actual center as I have seen many trophy sheep mounts, even the exotic ones. We didn't stay for the... More

We stopped in Dubois on our way further south and came in here for a visit. I never expected to see such a wonderful museum in such a small town. The exhibits were very well put together and informative. Two excellent movies rounded out the visit, along with more information from the staff.

Had the great pleasure of catching a local, Tom Lucas, give a seminar and demonstration of flint knapping. Loved his stories while he worked. The museum is really full of valuable information, too.

Stopped by to see some bighorn sheep but there are none at the location, just lots of information on them along with a movie, lots of animals in dioramas and two excellent videos to watch. You can see more wildlife down the road, which we did, although sheep were probable grazing else where. The road views on the wildlife trail... More
