  • This was a big disappointment and really not sure how it can call itself the ‘National’ Eagle Center, when it has just two eagles (one less than on its website) and they’re both completely immobile...

  • Fantastic place! Wonderful sanctuary where injured eagles, who are unable to survive in the wild can live out their lives being well taken care of. Seeing bald eagles in person has been on my bucket list forever and now I've actually gotten to see them! So majestic and amazing! Also saw them flying over the Mississippi River too! See the largest eagle art collection upstairs, featuring gorgeous paintings and artifacts. Highly recommend a visit.
  • Great place to check out. Have live Eagles that can not be released to the wild due to their injuries before rehabilitation. Great viewing are of the river with scopes to try and spit birds. A huge Eagle paraphernalia collection, activities for kids and adults. Fun gift shop area. Part of Blue Star Museums for military.
  • Went on a family vacation this weekend to the Wabasha to explore the Eagle Center and other local establishments. The Eagle Center is amazing! Very informative, the live Eagle ambassadors and the knowledgeable staff!! The center is beautiful and something for all ages! Looking forward to the outdoor amphitheater!!
  • I had a great time at the National Eagle center. Listening to the stories of the ambassadors, was wonderful. Latsche is a beautiful creature. Not that Columbia is bad either. Be Careful sitting in the front row of the live show. The Raptors can fling their poop into the second row!!! It was really one of a kind experience, only thing I would change is I really wanted to hold Latsche Also the bird game was fun, but my kids beat me every time.
  • We had the BEST time visiting the National Eagle Center! The facility and surrounding grounds are absolutely beautiful. There are tons of artifacts to explore and interactive learning opportunities. The view from the observation deck is stunning and the fountain outside is super fun to dip your toes into! *note: watch out for slippery algae :) Now all of that is enough for us to want to come back again and again, BUT, hands down the BEST part of our day was meeting Connor. Connor lead the live eagle program and it is a must see. We learned so much from him that we literally were calling people afterwards to share some fun eagle facts! His presentation was incredibly informative and engaging. Both my four and six year old were mega inspired by his enthusiasm for his work. Afterwards he even gave them some special attention, showing them other eagle species and thoughtfully answering all of their questions. Thank you, Connor. You really made our day! :)
