Although the have some live animals (birds), they also have a large collection of stuffed animals found in this part of Alaska. They also give a short lecture about some of the animals, which was interesting. Nice place to visit.

We saw so many varieties of raptors; wonderful! Bald eagles were so much larger than you might think. Don't miss this one. It's a must-do in Haines.

Enjoyed seeing the eagles, the museum and the other animails being rehabilitated at their facility. Great place to sit and watch a demonstration after a day of walking.

Sadly, did not get to see the eagles feed, but did get to see one swoop down. Watched the training and feeding of a small raptor. The huge variety of stuffed animals was intriguing and a great feel of actual size and perspective (fish, birds,...More
