Wonderful exhibits showing the wildlife in southeast Alaska with special attention to the Eagles in the area. This museum is definitely something everyone should see.

We were lucky to stop at Haines, due to an aborted stopover in Skagway (lucky we stopped there on the way back). The bald eagle museum is just great and a good way to spend an hour or two on a cold day.

Nice museum with a complete display of wild life seen in Alaska. Was disappointed that the only eagles we saw were caged and difficult to get pictures of. I understood that there would be more of a live display or presentation.. Especially since the cruise ship was in town.

This was an excellent place filled with great examples of the local wildlife. The red tailed hawk was handled well by its trainer. Very informative.

Very nice display of Alaskan wildlife. Including bears, foxes, birds of prey, porcupines, wolves, etc,etc. Very informative and the two live eagles were amazing. Friendly, helpful staff. Well worth the price of admission.

We saw many eagles in the wild but had a close up look here. Also a live owl. They have a huge exhibit of stuffed animals, birds, Its very nicely done. I wish we had more time to really go through it. The employees were nice and well informed.

This was an excellent opportunity to see eagles from an up-close vantage point. Many great displays of the indigenous animals of Alaska and great workers and volunteers to answer questions. If you love birds, you will love this stop.

Learned about local fauna and important links to culture. Samantha was knowledgeable about wild and captive eagles. The eagles gave a great show.

There is not much to do in Haines, so I guess this place is the best thing to call a museum if you like to see all kinds of stuffed animals, a bit creepy but worth the 30 minutes.

Rather small exhibit and a nice movie on the bald eagle. There is an informative demonstration and talk by a handler as she/he shows the 2 eagles that reside at the Museum. Admission is charged.
