Review for North American Bear Center, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We as a family have visited the NABC twice....both visits were wonderful The exhibits are very educational and interesting. The theatre area for viewing the resident bears is wonderful, and the theatre area for viewing the 'BearWalker' video is superb. We enjoyed the outdoor viewing area for the bears. My family is certainly looking forward to future visits to see the progress on the new educational wing that is currently being built. The children's room is awesome...a wonderful area for young children to learn about the American Black Bear and various wildlife from the area. The various video stations showing actual bear behavior in the wild are such a great visual tool.
A special treat was the time we actually got to meet Dr. Lynn Rogers while at the NABC...thanks to him and his unique approach to studying the bears the world can learn to appreciate and co-exist with these beautiful creatures.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand it !! They already have an educational module for school children.....perhaps with more funding they would be able to reach more schools and more people would grow up learning to appreciate nature and co-exist. They are doing an excellent job!
