“Very enjoyable place to walk around.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Animals are well cared for and you can interact quite a bit. Pay attention to the feeding times and be present for those. For an additional fee you can schedule an interactive session with the owls, penguins, or other birds. We have done this and enjoyed it immensely. You can tour the whole thing in less than two hours, but there are many places to sit and just enjoy the birds if you like to linger.

“Very Nice for Children”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a great stop in Pittsburgh. Great selection of birds to see in an open air setting. Be sure to stop by to feed the parrots. I suggest a wonderful morning followed by lunch and an afternoon at the childrens museum. Then dinner. bty walking distance from downtown.

“Up Close and Personal w/ the Birds”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

This small but fascinating facility lets you get much closer to birds than you do in most zoos. There are a couple of rooms where they fly and walk freely and it's really fun to observe. We attended the penguin feeding, which was extremely interesting. The folks working here seemed to really love their jobs and were eager to share information about the birds. There are coupon books w/ a 'buy one, get one free' ticket offer in many tourist locations -- we got one at the incline.
