It is everything and more. To see Eagles flying around the Mississippi and around my sons' home, near the Mississipi is awesome. The Eagle Center is for everyone and very educational. They even have a couple of eagles they use to educate people that had been injured a while ago. While in Wabasha, it's a must-see

We love going here on the weekends. Our daughter loves it so much she asked to have a birthday party there, they made it happen and we would recommend going to anyone near and far.

This museum really caters to eagle watchers and lovers and if you are one of them, you will not be disappointed. If you go at the right time of year, just getting to the museum is plenty enjoyable if you want to see eagles. The viewing along the Mississippi just north of Winona is excellent. We saw more than a... More

The National Eagle Center was great. The events such as the live Eagle and live bird show were educational as well as a lot of fun!

Informative and in March there are Eagles up and down the river. We watched the eagle demo and took in a bird photo class that also was free. Right across the river is Nelson Cheese factory with lots of choices of Wisconsin cheese. The local gift shops and art were also a draw for me. It was easy to get... More

The staff were very helpful, friendly and took pride in there work, these of course are volunteers, they are... More

Such a lovely educational experience where you and the kids can learn all about eagles and raptors in general. Getting to see them live and up-close is truly spectacular!
