On our way out of Haines to visit the Kroschel Wildlife Centre, we had a little extra time and as we drove out of town I noticed two bald eagles sitting behind some mesh on the side of this building. I urged my husband to turn around so we could show the kids. We then realized it was attached to... More

Great helpful and friendly staff, and lots of stuffed animals. Quite useful for figuring out what you have been seeing while in Alaska. A couple of bald eaglesbin a decent sized aviary that are unable to be returned to the wild due to injury. We spotted wild eagles in a tree in town, that were just as close and not... More

I would highly recommend planning your visit so that you can take the guided tour. This allowed our family to go back and see all of the raptors they have there. The young guides were very informative and helped us increase our knowledge of raptors. The taxidermy displays were very good and also well arranged for learning.

We visited the Bald Eagle Foundation on our short stop in Haynes on our cruise. They have a nice display area and a raven and bald eagle exhibit. The gal that takes care of the eagles came in and gave us nice presentation and a Q&A session. It was nice. There are 2 eagles that live at the facility because... More

This museum has many stuffed animals on display and interesting information about wild animals in Alaska. There are 2 bald eagles on site. The young lady who did the presentation was very knowledgable and I learned some interesting things about them. There was also a special presentation with an owl that our tour group got to see (we were on... More

Abby & Kelly were great tour guides. They provided information on the eagles, hawks and owls that were being treated at the museum due to injuries. The museum was a nice place to visit in Haines Alaska.

We happend to be there when they had an open house, so it was a free visit. We got to tour the museum and the aviary. It was really neat. The interns were friendly and helpful. It is worth stopping by.

This was our favorite museum in Haines. Make sure you see the eagle presentation!! The woman who gave the talk was great, and the live eagles were beautiful. The museum has loads of taxidermy animals from Alaska, with descriptions on each. It was wonderful to see the birds and now know what they are. I highly recommend this museum!
