In the area for a photography conference. We had a private visit in the evening with many raptors brought out for us to photograph. The staff are extremely knowledgeable about the birds and reptiles that they care for, and are eager to share that knowledge with visitors.

My grandsons and I have enjoyed the Outdoor Discovery Center! I loved taking them there as toddlers to age five for some great one-on-one time. Wide open nicely groomed spaces for running and imagining. Animals, birds and taxidermy are fascinating for them. I recommend a nice pair of children's binoculars to give it a safari feel. Great place for peaceful... More

We visited on a semi-rainy Saturday. We were able to see taxidermy in the main building and were told that most of the other buildings are closed on Saturdays. I did not get to walk the entire property but plan on a return visit based on wanting to walk around here. If traveling Holland on what I consider their “off-season”... More

Well worth a morning or afternoon. Lots of taxidermy in the main building. Lots of good trails and the aviary center was great. The elk is cool.

Visited this center to see what it is all about. They put on many programs for the community and are very good at what they do. Worth the trip on a lazy afternoon to see what you have been missing.

The walkway is easy and the birding is great. The raptor center has a big selection of birds, eagles, hawks, vultures, etc.

What a wonderful little patch of nature. Besides the shooting range that must be close by, we really enjoyed the peace and solitude of Discovery Center. The elk were amazing...my boys loved watching them.

We stopped by to see this place based on trip advisor. The visitor center was really cool. They had a lot of animals that were taxidermied (or however you would say that!) There was also a sweet little owl in there. Lots of reptiles as well and a touch table for children. We walked around but honestly didn't see much... More

Our kids loved playing in the Children's play area and taking walks in the property. They like to look for frogs and turtles in the ponds. It is a great place to take a walk in the West Michigan area. All of the trails are level and easy to maneuver with a stroller or wagon. The Bird's of Prey facility... More
