My Wife & I were spending a long weekend near La Crosse Wisconsin in July of this year and one day we took a drive along the Mississippi River on the Minnesota side and came across this place. We both love the outdoors and especially seeing big birds (Eagles, Hawks, etc), so when we saw the signs and stopped in we were thrilled! Even though it cost $8 per adult to get in, the place was very nice. It looked like it was built within the last couple years so the place was very clean, with several exhibits and displays throughout the facility. We came at the right time because there was a 45 min seminar all about eagles, which included a real/live Eagle to show & tell with. It was very informative and the kids that were there really enjoyed it! There must have been 40 people there and everyone loved it! We also got to take a picture standing right next to an eagle, which was very cool. We were also able to go into a room and stand next to several Eagles who were all hurt in the past, which meant they could not survive in the wild anymore due to the fact they could not fly anymore! We are going to take our kids to this place next Summer so they can learn all about Eagles and to learn different ways that we can all help preserve Eagles and other animals in the wild by our actions! Great Place and a Real Gem!
