Great family place

This museum is really amazing. Live raptors and other animal almost within reach, but safely out of range. Other animals up close and a great demonstration program.

It is well worth supporting this wildlife museum. My youngest grandchild and I spent a few hours there in the middle of the week. We were able to see, through glass and TV, the room where they receive and treat injured animals. It was very informative and the guide was good. We will return.

Stopped by because we had some time on our hand from traveling. They charged $25 for 3 adults (two adults, one 15 y/o). They had 5 different type of falcons that were not in cages. They were injured so they could not fly or be returned to the wild. There were also 5 different Owls and a Road Runner to... More

Took my grandchildren to the Lindsay and they had a blast. Probably like the birds of prey the most. Fascinated with the Owls and of course the Eagle. Fun Staff member kept it light and made it rewarding for the kids. Can't wait to go again.

Small facility, but full of engaging activities for all ages to share. The live animals brought clarity to issues as human encroachment on animal territory.

See local wildlife that is rescued by the volunteers that work here. Great for children to learn about the local habitat.

We were pleasantly surprised to find out when we arrived on Friday that admission was free the 3rd Friday of the month. There are hands on displays and live demonstrations that keep school age children occupied.
