A lot of people have put a lot of work into this place. Amazing exhibits, a lot of history and of course seeing 2 Bald Eagles was pretty cool. Easily spend a good hour or more here. One for families, a really interesting and well worth place to visit.

I've lived in Haines Alaska for 12 years and love visiting the foundation. They have extremely knowledgeable staff and live birds on display. A large collection of local animals and sealife that has been taxadermied so you can see just how tall a grown bull moose is and how massive our brown bears get. Make it a destination on your...

We visited the Bald Eagle Museum in late September and enjoyed an interesting presentation prior to the eagle feeding. The photo opportunties are awesome , allowing you to position your camera through special camera ports for clear, up-close images of the two resident bald eagles. The window light is good and a painted background provides for an image that looks... More

There were two live Eagles, we got to see at feeding time (they are fed twice a day) but they did not seem very hungry. However, they are gorgeous animals. The other half of the center was stuffed animals you see in the wild and not enough of the local Native American Tribe History, which is so interesting.

We literally stumbled on this place while walking around Haines following the completion of our formal tour earlier in the day. The folks who operate and staff this place are passionate about the preservation of this endangered species. The displays include a pair of live bald eagles and educational exhibits about a large variety of many of the other animals... More

They have a nice room of stuffed animals so you can see some animals that otherwise you might not see. They had 2 birds out and staff to tell about them. They have 2 eagles. Knowledgeable staff. Small gift shop.

We stopped in near closing time, but the staff was still very accommodating. We saw their two resident bald eagles and a few other raptors who were rehabilitating. They have an extensive taxidermy collection that is very educational - allowing visitors to see wildlife in various life stages. It's important to note that the taxidermy collection has been amassed over... More
