Entry is free to everyone on the third Friday of the month, so I took advantage. This is a small museum and the main attraction are the large birds - owls, hawks, falcons and ravens.

This is a wonderful place to bring the whole family rain or shine. You will observe live rescued animals most of which will now live a full life safe and sound. The staff will teach you things that you never knew.

My kids (7 and 9 years old) loved this place. there are many wild animals and most of them were rescued from your neighborhood. The education program was good and you can watch closely and even touch some of the animals under supervision and guide. My kids loved owls, especially!!

Cannot say enough about this excellent organization and the service they provide to this area in terms of rescuing and rehabilitating wild animals. They also provide excellent education. We are members. My wife has volunteered there. We have brought wounded birds there. What would we do if Lindsay was not there?

The animals are well displayed and the staff's descriptions in presentations are very well done. The animal hospital demonstrations are particularly interesting.

Lindsay Wildlife Museum is so fun to wander around and see all the beautiful animals, birds and all. Don't think it will be a short trip - you can lose track of time in there looking at everything.

Lindsay is a wildlife rescue and release center first. But the programs & non-releasable animals they cannot release are on display and used for education and enrichment. Great place to visit, great value !!
