Definitely one of my favorite things in Pittsburgh! Interactive and educational. So many adorable birds, plus a sloth and bats! Will go again.

The aviary is awesome. You can get up close and personal with the birds....They fly right to you. As of August 2017 they now have baby flamingos....softest babies ever. I highly recommend signing up for an experience.
