It really deserves more than 5 stars because the place has many beautiful animals, the staff is so nice, as well. My son learnt a lot with the presentations, videos, interactions, and so on. The owls are awesome, there's no place like that with so beautiful creatures.

Used to take my sons here a lot when they were smaller. They, and I, always enjoyed the exhibits and the friendly staff. It was our goto place to kill an afternoon.

Lots of fun and quiet, easy to speak with staff, great information and games for visitors to play along the way. Amazing live birds and animals to touch. Nice and easy day.

We had taken our kids to Lindsay many times as they were growing up and now we've taken two of our grand kids (ages 7 and 4). Terrific learning experience for them, and the new facility is a great improvement over the old Museum. Lots of hands-on learning and the kids are still raving about Lindsay.

I think I enjoyed this more than my son... seriously, but then he saw the bee display. Loved how they had them coming through the outside wall into the display hive! Loved the tethered birds. Barn owls always get me! So pretty! Love the black raven tossing around his mouse, and the staff very helpful!

We've used the Museum mainly as a wildlife refuge and rehab center. A few years ago we found a baby squirrel under our bed. It was obviously brought in by our cat, Max. Max never learned to kill birds and small animals, he just likes to play with them. The squirrel probably fell out of his nest. Whatever happened, we... More

My children always loved Lindsay Wildlife Museum. We have many fond memories from this museum. Now I am taking my small grandchildren there. The bird exhibit is a big learning experience. They are also delighted in carefully petting some of the small animals there. Grandparents - become a member - your children and grandchildren will love it. Please help support... More
