What is there to do?

It's your turn to take a walk on the wild side when you tour the interpretive facility at the International Wolf Center.

Sounds pretty exciting doesn't it!

At this lovely Minnesota experience, kids can learn all about these amazing creatures. They can learn how wolves use those big ears, big eyes and those infamous big teeth. Kids can even meet their resident ambassador wolves and learn how they communicate, play, hunt and eat. 

Your admission to the International Wolf Center includes all the daily programs, we well as film presentations in the theater. 

It of course also includes the exhibits they have running, that showcase the fascinating aspects of life in the wolf pack. The complications, the hierachy, and the social structure.

Kids can learn about the connection between wolves and humans, and how modern day living impacts the wolf's survival. 

Those ages 3 to 9 years can even crawl into the Little Wolf den and experience the four seasons of a pup's first year of life!

If you're curious about what the wolves are doing, you can actually see what they're doing right now on their Wolf Watch Cams and learn what you can do to help wolves in the wild!

A beautiful experience in Minnesota where kids can learn all about a very special species.
