We enjoyed seeing a variety of birds from all over the world. Also, we enjoyed the "Nature Voice" live bird show. All of the bird shows were extra cost in addition to admission.

Visited the National Aviary as a girls day out. What an amazing place! Took part in the penguin encounter.....got to touch a penguin and pose for photos. Chris, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable about penguins and did a great job. Really enjoyed the whole experience.

We took our 18-month old grandson, and all three of us enjoyed it. The shows are fantastic for all ages. I highly recommend visiting the Aviary.

Great place with very unique animals. My grandchildren loved it and have actually gone three or four time. Exhibits change so you never know what birds you will see. In fact we saw the baby sleuth right after it was born. Great place.
