Small museum was a nice diversion for something a little different

We like animals of all kinds, as well as eclectic museums, and this place seemed to fall solidly in both categories, so we kinda had to stop. For a small museum, there’s a lot of... read more

We like animals of all kinds, as well as eclectic museums, and this place seemed to fall solidly in both categories, so we kinda had to stop. For a small museum, there’s a lot of photos, information, and artifacts. There’s information about pigeon breeds, racing pigeon winners, and the use of pigeons in World War I. In front of the...

The museum looks like it's fairly new. It is small but laid out nicely. The kids were ready to go after 5 minutes of looking at pictures of pigeons. The racing history was interesting.

We stopped here based on the other Trip Advisor reviews and it was well worth our time! I think the name has been changed to the American Pigeon Museum and Library... Lori greeted us as we walked up to the building and explained all about the live pigeons on display right outside the door. It was a great introduction and... More

I heard about this museum from the newspaper, and was expecting it to be kind of lame. Boy was I wrong! This place is full of interesting facts about the role of pigeons in WW1 and WW2 and so much more! They had live birds out front so you could see the different breeds up close. They even let me...

I visited this museum with my parents in mid-August and we had a wonderful time. The museum curators are a very knowledgable and kind couple. They took the time to introduce us to the live pigeon breeds they had outside, and I even got to hold a couple of them! Inside, the museum is very cool. It is brand new... More

I went to their opening event last June and I was very impressed! They are in a new building and have lots of displays, history exhibits, and art. They even had different breeds of "fancy" pigeons outside for you to see up close, and were very knowledgeable about the birds. This is a great family destination, and it's free! I'll... More

The new museum is not open yet. We were fortunate to talk to two very knowledgeable people and learned a lot about raising pigeons and the sport of pigeon racing. It whetted our appetite so we can't wait to see what they do with the new facility.

This is a very small attraction but there are a number of birds to look at and some interesting history. If you hit it just right, someone will have time to show you around -- which is really nice -- otherwise, you're pretty much on your own.

We found this place online and our oldest son thought it would be neat to learn about racing pigeons. After exploring thier website we planned a visit on Saturday, August 4th. Much to our surprise the "Museum" looked to be under construction behind the huge weeds that had grown up around the new-looking building. It looked to be no big... More

Considering how many pigeons are in the US, this center was very interesting and well done. I would recommend.
