“Excellent museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

This is a must see when in Haines, Alaska. The animal displays are amazing & the staff is very knowledgeable. Whatever animals you did not get to see in the wild, you will see here! The live eagles, owl, hawk & little owl (hoot owl?) made great photo subjects. It was great to see them up close. The admission fee is nominal & well worth it. Add this to your list of things to see in Haines!

“A great way to spend the morning and discover the North”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Our visit to this raptor sanctuary was an unexpected delight. Volunteers and staff were very welcoming and informative. The raptors are clearly well cared for and treated with respect and kindness. The exhibit is informative and accessible. We met Hans the Owl and Sarah the Owl and Zilla the Falcon. Awesome to see these incredible creatures up close. Too bad you can't pet them! ;) One great room was the fauna of Alaska exhibit featuring animals from land, sea and air. The teens loved it. Amazing to see all the creatures of the North gathered in one room. I didn't know we had a shark in the North!!! A great way to spend a rainy morning and the price is right at $12 entry fee. Keep up the great work Alaska Bald Eagle Foundation.

“Impressive”

So impressive! I have always been interested in the American Bald Eagle, thank you Elizabeth Hartwell of Mason Neck, VA. There are many sites in Haines to visit. You MUST see this museum.

“Great place to see live raptors!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We have been to the center twice now. Both teens much enjoyed the live owls and hawks. The folks are eager to answer questions. We also enjoyed the room where it was okay to touch bones, horns, and fur of local species. The price was a bit hefty for a family of 4 at $40, but it goes to a good cause.

“less than exciting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

If you have not seen eagles yet, go here. Otherwise, they are more awesome in the wild. They feed the captive eagles at 2:30, but the presentation was poor and eagles not totally cooperative.
