This place is small but interesting. Great walk around area with small kids. Lots of great birds to see - including peacocks roaming around freely. We also attended the bird show and that was the highlight for everyone. Well done.

I had not been for years and I took my grand daughter for our "Grandma Day". We had so much fun. The Aviary was decorated for Halloween. The bird show featured "Halloween Birds". Our favorite activity was feed the birds inside their cage. They land on your arms and/or head. It was awesome. My grand daughter (age 10) had a... More

I am not a bird lover, but this place gave me a new respect for biodiversity and birds. Some of the birds were so charming, and some were scary to be honest. Go at an off-peak time. We went on a warm November Saturday afternoon, and there were not that many people there. I would recommend going at an off-peak... More

This is a beautiful, relaxing and informative place to visit. The bird collection is great and the animals seem pretty happy. The set up is pleasant for walking. Also, entry is only $1 per person on Wednesdays during the winter.

My husband and I went to the aviary during our recent stay in Utah. We had never been to this attraction before and were pleasantly surprised. While it is off season and some of the birds were unavailable as they were being housed in a warmer indoor home; there were still plenty to see and experience. It was so peaceful... More

I am a huge bird lover and I was in heaven here! They had so many birds, some I had never even seen before. There was a whole section for different kinds of owls! And it’s not too big so you can easily see ever in an hour or two. It was all so beautiful and looked wonderfully maintained. Was... More

What a nice surprise - An aviary in Salt Lake City! Attractive walking trails with outdoor exhibits (not sure what will happen to all those tropical birds in Winter) and some indoor ones as well. Most of the birds are in wire type cages, which is good air circulation for them and usually lots of room, but does make it... More

Tracy Aviary is an annual stop f or our family when the children visit. It is a special place in SLC, which is good for both adults and children. The shows they put on with the birds are fun and informative.
