Gorgeous facility and even more gorgeous birds! Educational and always fascinating. The membership is a very good price, and lets you get free access to their Fall Flights displays, which are thrilling. I love this place!

This is a nice but small facility. You'll only see but a few birds on display I think you need to be a real bird fan or falconer to appreciate it.

Fri-Sun are the best days. They do bird demonstrations on these days. You need to get there around 2 pm because it is a very popular activity.

The last I knew it was not open on Mondays. However, other days it is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. They have tours and live bird showings scheduled as well as providing the freedom to look around on your own.
