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.

We were a little overwhelmed with the huge room of taxidermy animals, but the kids loved it and it was pretty interesting to learn about all the animals. Worth a quick visit before you head to the reserve to see the creatures live.

Great place to take the family or go by yourself. Feeding times are a good time to go. Owls are also a must see.

The museum is fantastic for all ages. Taxidermy animals represent all the various wildlife in the area. But they also have live raptors used for their educational programs. School groups from all around the SE Alaska area come by ferry to visit this museum. If you are in Haines, this is the place to visit. The fee to enter the... More

I visited the American Bald Eagle Foundation as part of the 2014 Alaskan Bald Eagle Festival. The building contains a large room sized diorama of Alaskan Wildlife with other wildlife specimens displayed in the other rooms. Staff was available to explain the diorama examples and in many cases could provide the source of the specimens. The other part of the... More
