My hubby and I came here for the first time and enjoyed learning more about the Lindsay Wildlife Museum Center and seeing the wildlife in person. The wildlife talks were also awesome to listen to during our visit. The staff members were nice and friendly as well.

The Lindsey is a great place to take young children. Just big enough for litle ones not to be overwhelmed.Wildlife that kids can recognize near their homes-raccoons,birds,snakes,etc. They also have a "hands on" art room for children to make prijects related to their visit. Very friendly staff and volunteers.

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!
