  • A great place to check out Bald Eagles! Plan your visit with migrations to get the best experience; we've been there throughout the years at various times with friends and always find it fascinating! Lots of information; great for family time; great location along the Mississippi River. Make sure to explore Wabasha and hit Lark toys just a few miles from town.
  • April visit, 1st time there with out of town guests. WE WILL RETURN with the grandkids. Seeing the eagles up close was 5 stars. 15 minute classroom demonstration on egg crushing was 5 stars. The center itself was well put together.
  • You can see bald eagles and golden eagle from 2-3 feet of distance as they are in captivity. Lots of books, t-shirts and other merchandise for sell. Plenty of information about bald eagles as this is national bald eagle center. Other birds information also you can find there. You can have live bald eagle information session. As it is on the bank of Mississippi River, you can see bald eagles in wild also.
  • I took the granddaughters ages 2 &4 and we all enjoyed the up front experience with the eagles. They had plenty of hands on actives to keep girls occupied. I plan on taking my other grandchild when in the area.
  • Great place to learn and see raptor. What a majestic bird. Went during the month of March and the drive down was spectacular with all the eagles flying above.
