The Bald Eagle Foundation was not my favorite place to visit. I felt the people who worked there were to busy to answer any of our questions.

They have a program where you can watch them feed their resident bald eagle with questions and answer period. Also a view of other birds of prey they are rehabilitating. A good way to get up close or learn of animals you might see in the area .

Neat place with displays of Alaskan wildlife. This is a place the kids will find cool. You can pay a fee to see eagles and other raptors. I did not do this as I did see 2 Bald Eagles on my walk from the docks.

This place is raved about but is a little disappointing. The eagle feeding is at 2:30 p.m. and we scheduled our visit around this event since it was reported to be thrilling. We ended up just listening most of the time because the bars are so thick you just cannot focus on the eagle/trainer behind them. The trainer was knowledgeable... More

We may have been there at the wrong time, but there were no eagles to be seen. At all. Lots of interesting stuffed animals.

If you visit Haines, make sure to take the time to see this museum. We were fortunate enough to be greeted by Natalie, a 10 year old guide at this museum who was very informed and gave us one of the finest tours with full explanations of all the exhibits. We saw live owls (3) and even a live bald... More

We had seen many bald eagles already on our trip but it was nice to see one really close and we even learned a few things. I think the education they do with area youth and the public is wonderful and worth the admission price. I could do with out seeing all the dead stuffed animals, but that's just me.

We stopped by to check this out after the cruise ship location guide suggested it. Was not disappointed. The taxidermy us fantastic. Allows a person to get near animals of all shapes and sizes with no fear of hurting them, or them hurting you. Gave great information about the animals and LOVED seeing the live birds.
