Review for International Wolf Center, Ely, MN, USA
My story with the International Wolf Center started in October 2018. For my oldest daughter's tenth birthday my husband and I let her choose a wolf to adopt. She chose Axel! Part of that gift was a trip to go visit Axel and the other wolves in the spring. We recently made that trip with my family of four, my mother in law, my two sisters, and two nieces! We had an absolute blast! The staff were so knowledgeable and eager to answer questions professionally and honestly. There was something for everyone to enjoy between the exhibit, theater, little wolf hands on play/learning center, presentation's by staff, and of course just sitting and enjoy watching the wolves up close and personal! One of my favorite moments was when we returned Saturday evening for the "What's for Dinner" class. We were one of the first people in, and as we were walking towards the wolf veiwing area, Axel was there waiting. My daughter started skipping to the auditorium and Axel trotted along beside her. It was so sweet to see her light up! We enjoyed learning so much about wolves, all nine of us! We can't wait to go back! This all started with one little girls passion and love for wolves that has now sparked interest in our whole family! Thank you for an unforgettable experience!
