We really enjoyed being able to be up close to the birds. It was very educational. I would recommend feeding the lorikeets.

Both grown ups and children of our family loved this aviary, and we spent most of the day here. So much to see, and not only birds in all sizes and colours. There were penguins and a tropical rain forest exhibit too. The kids loved...More

Great place to see a very wide variety of birds and learn about the different environments they live in. You can feed the birds and see some of them being walked around for people to pet or see up close. Small restaurant on site.

1 of 2 aviaries in the US. Fabulous guides and selection of birds! There is even a small restaurant, and frequent bird feedings with lectures!

Spent ~2 hours at the aviary exploring the different environments and the birds that live in them. Some fun feeding shows allow closer interaction (some with modest fees for the chance). There are also premium interactive activities which come at significant premium prices. Bring your...More

We had the owl encounter at my son's wedding. The trainer brought the owl from table to table during dinner. I did not see anyone touch it, just the trainer holding the owl and photos taken with it.
