Hours & Admission

Seasonal Schedule Changes: This fall, the National Aviary is open daily, except Tuesdays, from 10 am – 5 pm. Plan your visit to enjoy new daily activities. We have adopted enhanced safety protocols and are now offering a timed ticketing experience that allows visitors to enjoy all of the National Aviary’s immersive habitats while maintaining physical distancing. Learn more about the steps we can take together to stay safe.

Guests may arrive at any point during their time slot. Tickets will be available at the door, but we strongly encourage pre-booking tickets to ensure your spot is reserved.

Get even closer during your visit with an Animal Encounter, now including general admission! Pre-book an encounter when you purchase tickets to see and interact with an African Penguin, sloth, flamingo, or bird of prey!
