  • What a wonderful place! Not only did we learn a LOT about eagles, but we also got to experience real bald and golden eagles from arm's length distance! It was amazing. Plus they are located right on the riverfront in an area that has great family spaces, dining, walking and biking, and hotels. We will be back for sure!!! We support the National Eagle Center as members and encourage others to do the same. It's well worth it and a well-stewarded organization.
  • I think the national eagle center is a great place to see eagles up close. At the presentation, you will be able to feel the weight and the size of an eagle egg, and will also learn about the history of when eagles were endangered. There are also lots of other fun exhibits to experience. The national eagle center is a great place to go.
  • Brought out-of-state company for the experience with live eagles. We found the presentation informative, especially as they passed around many hands-on objects as they talked. There are currently four bald eagles available for viewing. The museum is also very nice and many fun souvenirs/gifts are available in the shopping area. They do wonderful work here in educating the public! The setting is absolutely perfect on the Mississippi River where many eagles naturally nest anyway!
  • Wonderful up close eagle experience! The live eagle program was unforgettable for my children and me. Watching the eagle feed was amazing! Staff provided fun and educational experience. Fun, interactive hands on exhibits kept my 8 and 12 year old intrigued. We can't wait to return in the winter!
  • We were visiting the area from Minneapolis and very much enjoyed taking our 3 and y year old here. They had a wonderful presentation about eagles which was very educational and fun! Highly recommend stopping here if you pass through
