This is a great short trip for the whole family. Lots for the kids to do hands on wise and plenty to see without needing to take up a whole day and the admission is worth it as it goes to a good cause.

We were there long enough to see two bird showings. I learned so much about falcons, raptors and other birds of prey. The owls are so small and so large!! They even have condors. Allow about 2 hours

A bit of a drive, but worth it if you are into the natural sciences. Depending on when you're there, they might have baby birds or full grown ones that are in recovery for release. Lots of interesting information - good for kids and grownups alike.

We flew into Boise and this is close to the airport which gave us something interesting to do as soon as we got off the airplane. They have eagles, ospreys, kestrels, owls, and a California Condor. Really cool! The staff and volunteers were great too! My family really enjoyed this.

This is not a large attraction but we loved it!! There are exhibits with large raptors, including the American Bald Eagle and California Condors. They have THE captive breeding program for California Condors and always have a couple on exhibit and closed circuit viewing of the breeding birds with chicks in nest boxes. There are multiple volunteers to answer questions... More

The center is fantastic and the staff are amazing - friendly and knowledgeable. The Discovery Room is especially good for kids. Mine are a bit young to fully take advantage - 3 and 4 - but if you have school-aged kids this is a great place to bring them. We met Winston the screech owl and the kids loved that.... More

The World Center for Birds of Prey was well worth a visit. The grounds are pretty with several species of raptors on display, including the condor exhibit where several of these large birds are housed. We had the chance to catch one of the bird demonstrations showing a young Prairie Falcon recently brought to the center. It's a great place... More

We were killing time on a family visit and came here to an unexpected treat. I had no idea what we would encounter. I can't describe the education we got here on a variety of birds. We've back-packed the California condor country but here we got to see some birds up close. The variety of birds is extensive and not... More

Great place to learn about birds in the Pacific Northwest and local areas! Hands on displays and lectures. Birds with handlers out in the open allow close up vantages for being able to really check out the birds. Roosting areas have clear viewing of the birds inside. Great family experience!

We took the lovely drive up the mountain to visit this attraction we read about in a travel magazine. The location and yards are beautiful. The buildings are well-maintained and up-to-date. The attendants were helpful and friendly. Our guide was knowledgeable and the exhibits informative. We really enjoyed our time spent here and would recommend it-especially for adults and teens.
