    Well its a small place and takes less than 30-40 mins to see the whole place. It has a smell that can be overbearing and bird poop every where. Most of the birds look sad in that congested place. Only the penguins were playing around. Overall I did not enjoy this place at all. Ps: If you are immune compromised, I suggest you keep out of this place, as this can be a health hazard to you.

    Not worth the money. The shows are pathetic and the place is a dump. They are constantly asking for money.

    The variety of birds was impressive and the educational programs displayed them well. The rainforest and wetlands sections have a lot going on.The birds are free to fly right past you, and some walk up to your feet. It’s wonderful to see them so close.

    Wonderful. I’d been past this place many times on the way to the Mattress Factory (one of my Pittsburgh favorites), but never stopped in until today. Although it might seem a fairly small place, there was enough going on for me to occupy 3 hours very happily. I’m not a “bird watcher”, but I was captivated by the ability to get up close to a wide variety of exotic species – for example, being less than a foot away from brightly-colored Australian finches; about 18″ from a penguin grooming herself; having an Inca Tern on the wing snatch a small grub from my fingers; and having three Lories perched on my hand eating out of a cup of nectar. I didn’t go to any of the paid shows, but did enjoy the free “feeding shows” a lot. The student volunteers are friendly, the staff helpful and knowledgeable. Well worth a visit.

    My two grandchildren, my daughter, and I were excited about the Aviary since we had seen the hype on the local tv station and the website is loaded with photos. Once we arrived, and walked through, each of us were disappointed. Approximately forty-five minutes later, we had seen everything that is included in the extremely over priced $11-$13 admission/person. If one wants to experience more, one better have lots of cash. Each “show” is an additional $5/person. Want to experience feeding the inhabitants? That costs money, too. We were disappointed. In our assessment of the place, you don’t get what you pay for. It is way too expensive.
