“A Must See Attraction For All Bird Lovers”
Reviewed April 2, 2011

I had a wonderful time at The World of Wings Pigeon Center. Being a bird lover, I had to see this attraction! The World of Wings Pigeon Center has plenty of photos, newspaper articles, information about pigeon breeds, racing pigeons, pigeons used in the military, medals won by those racing pigeons, and keeping pigeons as a hobby. It also tells the story of how the center was created and built. There were a few souveniers inside, like t-shirts and a coffee mug. Outside, I saw many pigeons in various lofts. I learned that some of the pigeons will be sold to breeders while others are racing. The pigeons were very beautiful. I only wish they had a tour guide at the center to answer questions and provide even more information.
I also enjoyed hearing the roosters crow as I walked by.
If you're a bird lover like me, you must see World of Wings Pigeon Center.

Tip: World of Wings Pigeon Center is located near the Cowboy Museum and not far from the Oklahoma City Zoo. I did both the Pigeon Center and the Cowboy Museum the same day.

“Not Worth Going Out Of Your Way For”
Reviewed June 22, 2010

If you in the area, worth a quick stop. When I say quick, I mean like 15min tops. Just a bunch of pigeons in different pins. Small museum with a few artifacts. Wouldnt be work driving extra too.

“Beautiful Birds”
Reviewed July 3, 2009

This is a very beautiful 5 acre property near the Cowboy Hall of Fame. There is so much history on the story of pigeons. Lots of homing pigeons and how they were used in some of the wars and now in the sport of racing pigeons. Lots of fancy breeders too. A must stop place (free) especially if you are near the Cowboy Hall of Fame.

“World of Wings Pigeons--Something Different”
Reviewed July 1, 2008

I've never been to anything like this. This is a place where they train passenger pigeons to race. My family found it quite interesting. In fact, my son decided that he might like to race pigeons himself someday. The museum here is small. However the staff was excellent. If you ask questions and express interest, the staff members will show you the pigeons and explain all about them. It is near the Zoo and it is totally free. If you are interested in birds, plan to spend about 1/2 an hour here.
