I highly suggest visiting when in the area. It doesn’t really matter the time of year other than it is more enjoyable when it’s warm. Very educational and something for the entire family!

Gorgeous facility and even more gorgeous birds! Educational and always fascinating. The membership is a very good price, and lets you get free access to their Fall Flights displays, which are thrilling. I love this place!

Fri-Sun are the best days. They do bird demonstrations on these days. You need to get there around 2 pm because it is a very popular activity.

The last I knew it was not open on Mondays. However, other days it is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. They have tours and live bird showings scheduled as well as providing the freedom to look around on your own.
