  • Great place to kill an hour or two, loved The eagle show.
  • Really small. Nothing much to see. Preferred the Hammer museum.
  • A great wildlife conservation structure, a great museum, interactive activities and awesome avian ambassadors Owls, falcons, Bald Eagles... The staff is also full of knowledge and happy to share it, it was a great visit and I learned a lot about American wildlife.
  • Wasn't expecting much, but it was strangely enjoyable here. They have an amazing diorama of the various animals that live in this area, as well as collections of animal skulls and other body parts, seashells, and even a small exhibit on rocks and minerals. They have a few scavenger hunts to do that range from easy to difficult, but I think they could carry more in their gift shop. They are home to two bald eagles, as well as a few other raptors, and I recommend taking the guided tour and going to watching the feeding! They only take fifteen people on the guided tours twice a day though, so I recommend asking for a spot when you go!
  • The place is nicely done buy way overpriced. Don't try to visit in the winter months as they will be closed!

Where to stay in Haines

Haines supports a few hotels and motels, most of which sit near the waterfront. Bed and breakfasts are more plentiful in the area, and many boast superb views and provide a real taste of Alaska. Renting a more rural cabin or staying at a campsite or RV park is a good way to take advantage of Haines' beautiful natural surroundings.
