Explore tropical habitats close to home!
You may not be able to travel, but the National Aviary offers a warm and welcoming experience that feels like you’re headed to a tropical destination far away!
Plan your visit now and enjoy:
Daily programs that are immersive and engaging to a large audience, particularly to families with kids, as well as lifelong learners. These programs include a variety of opportunities, such as:
- Meet and Greet with birds and animals
- Enjoy informative talks during habitat feeding times, such as our Tropical Rainforest Feeding, where you can feel as though you stepped into a far-away land with your guide, a National Aviary expert!
- Immerse yourself in an interactive bird show, Amazing Amazon, sponsored by AAA Travel; available for $3 per person! You can book onsite at the Visitor Services Desk.
- Spend time in our tranquil habitats, with ample physical distancing to take in the serenity of the surroundings
A visit to the National Aviary allows you and your family to learn while having fun! Programming offered daily, except Tuesdays, fits nicely into STEAM education requirements, and yet a trip to the Aviary feels like recess, with engaging activities and immersive experiences for all!
The top priority of the National Aviary is always the health and safety of our guests, staff, volunteers, and animals. We actively follow guidelines from by the Allegheny County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). All National Aviary experiences have been thoughtfully planned to allow for physical distancing. Current measures also include enhanced safety protocols such as protective face masks, practicing physical distancing, and increased hand sanitization stations, as well as an online timed ticketing system which limits capacity to provide ample space for physical distancing.
