 The National Aviary has grown from simply presenting its collection in attractive settings to realizing its responsibility to celebrate, protect and preserve birds for the perpetuation of the web of life.

We had such a fun visit. I recommend doing one of the add-on feeding activities, and being on the lookout for special education opportunities such as a handler bringing out a bird and just sharing more about it in the hallway. The penguins were probably the most popular exhibit. Don't miss the butterfly pavilion outside. The facility was clean and climate controlled and wheelchair accessible. The staff and volunteers were all helpful and friendly.

The best part of this aviary is that area where peacocks and other birds are freely walking around us. We really had fun in that section. Loved their daily show. Lots of birds and got to know so many things. The staffs are very knowledgeable. My husband is a big fan of birds. We even decided there what birds we are going to have as pet in future. We did not get any that we chose, those are for future. But now we have a hand raised cockatiel and a budgie. BTW, it was hard to find parking on the weekend. Make sure to go early to get parking space and enjoy the aviary to the fullest. We would love to go there again.

I really enjoyed seeing the variety of birds at the National Aviary. The employees were very friendly and knowledgeable. Some birds walk around very close to you, which was fun. I definitely saw some birds that I never knew existed. The penguins were very cute. My favorite exhibit was the wetlands with flamingos!

I love this place and always make a point of coming here when I'm in Pittsburgh. They have amazing birds and programs, and their conservation awareness raising is great. I've spent many an awesome day here, would recommend anyone who likes animal (especially birds) to visit!

I loved visiting here, and will gladly go back again in the future. I liked that the place was not huge. You could go and spend 2-3 hours, see everything and it was an easy walk. A beautiful oasis of tranquility in a busy city. Highly recommended!
