The Eagle center is a great place to learn about the National symbol. A good experience that is interesting and interpretive. Certainly a great place to view wild Eagles and learn about them.

It’s very interactive and has a lot of great information about both eagles and the environment in the upper Mississippi River. My favorite part was the room where you get to be so close to live eagles! We all had a great time. Good way to spend the afternoon with all ages.
National Eagle Center rocks. If you are in the area this is a must stop location! The staff is so knowledgeable and answers any questions you may have. To get up close to these beautiful birds is a great experience.

This is amazing facility on the Mississippi River with live Eagles: both Golden and Bald. There is also some great art work displays and historical facts to see. If you are in the area, this is definitely a place to stop at and give the kids an opportunity to experience the Eagles.
