One could spend hours in this place. Not only does it cover Wildlife Art and a great number of its artist, it also provides a history of the area, and introduces the visitor to the history of Wildlife Art.

Loved our visit to the NMOWA.Beautiful building, wildlife art exhibits and very educational. Very relaxing environment with video presentations of wildlife art and photography. Also has a great restaurant for lunch with outside seating overlooking the National Elk Preserve. Really worth the visit.
