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

This place is a little costly for what is mostly a lot of taxidermy animals. We watched the eagle presentation which was very informative. The really good thing about this place is they do their best to rehabilitate injured birds and release them into the wild if they can or use the birds as an educational tool.

A great way to see these magnificent birds up close and learn more about them. All the birds here have been rescued and the staff do a great service caring for them and educating their visitors. Definitely worth a visit

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.
