Outstanding wildlife facility on the shores of the Mississippi. Do not miss the "one-on-one" presentation with the eagle (no - you do not get to hold one). Knowledgeable staff explains the eagle rescu... read more »

We stopped with our 12 year old son in September. We wanted to make sure to see the afternoon show. Plan your trip to be there in time to watch the show! Very entertaining and educational!
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!
I was very pleased that they, although infrequently asked about it - gave me a PCA (Personal Care Assistant) discount when I asked if they offered one since I was bringing a young man with a disability there. Glad I can add them to the list of places like the MN Science Museum and other great museums/ galleries where they fully embrace and encourage differently-abled people to come in! Loved that they also had a section recognizing the important work of Rachel Carson too! Beautiful views and nice giftshop too. Definitely recommend visitors look at the whole place.
We learned a lot and thought the fishing idea was great. This was the first time my kids went fishing. They didn't catch anything, but we couldn't get them to leave. Money well spent.
It is a very fun place in the area. There is a docks right outside, and you can often see fish or birds in or over the lake. Inside the center there is lots to do, buy and see. You can even go close to trained bald eagles.
Very informative. They take such good care of the eagles, and you get to see them up close. A great place for anyone.
