A wonderful educational place to learn about birds of prey both in the United States and internationally. Many live birds as well as great information on falconry around the world. See California condors which are being bred and released from this f a facility. Well worth the two hours to see and learn about these great birds.

We were here on a hot summer day, but it was not uncomfortable because the location on top of a hill offered a pleasant breeze. The larger birds were outside, and it was easy to get close enough to see them well. There is also an indoor area with exhibits and a hands on area with activities for children. We... More

A beautiful location for looking at these magnificent birds. Watch as qualified handlers bring the birds up close and personal.

A bit outside the city but a great visit. Be sure to take in the interactive shos with the trainers. There are beautiful grounds and exhibits with great stories about all the birds. Very interesting visit

Our family has visited the State of Idaho many times, specifically the Boise area. We have seen all of the "attractions" in Boise except this one. The World Center For Birds of Prey is both "Unique and amazing!" The staff was extremely helpful and the displays are very informative. We took our time examining each display, each bird, and all...

Brought my family to visit the World Center for Birds of Prey recently. It cost my family of 6 approx. $40 in entry fees, and that was using the coupon on the brochure we found at our hotel. This facility is small and well-kept, but unique in what it does. There are a number of small cages which the raptors... More

Worth the entrance fee to be educated about the birds they have rescued off the endanger list. How they were able to achieve this feat. If you are a hunter they have a display were they have how a lead bullet can flake into the game that was shot.. They strongly suggested to use copper bullet to help get the... More

Although the breeding program here is amazing, there really is not a lot to see with perhaps 10 live species on display and multiple mounts. I did learn some info about raptors but you could complete a visit in about 2 hrs. Must be amazing in the fall when they do outside flying shows but only availe in Oct.
