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.

They have lots of little demonstrations with the live birds of prey, hawks, owls, eagles. Excellent information and a diorama of the area's animals.

What a wonderful organization with a fantastic mission. Loved their displays of the area's animals and the presentations by the student interns was very impressive. Gotta stop by and visit this foundation/museum. Educational, entertaining and leaves the visitor with a great appreciation for this foundation's work to protect these incredible animals. Thank you to the ver friendly and caring staff.

This is a must see when in Haines, Alaska. The animal displays are amazing & the staff is very knowledgeable. Whatever animals you did not get to see in the wild, you will see here! The live eagles, owl, hawk & little owl (hoot owl?) made great photo subjects. It was great to see them up close. The admission fee... More

Our visit to this raptor sanctuary was an unexpected delight. Volunteers and staff were very welcoming and informative. The raptors are clearly well cared for and treated with respect and kindness. The exhibit is informative and accessible. We met Hans the Owl and Sarah the Owl and Zilla the Falcon. Awesome to see these incredible creatures up close. Too bad... More

We have been to the center twice now. Both teens much enjoyed the live owls and hawks. The folks are eager to answer questions. We also enjoyed the room where it was okay to touch bones, horns, and fur of local species. The price was a bit hefty for a family of 4 at $40, but it goes to a... More
