The National Aviary is open to guests daily, except Tuesdays, from 10 am to 5 pm. Timed entry tickets are required and are available for purchase at https://shop.aviary.org. With enhanced safety protocols and immersive experiences, the National Aviary is excited for your visit!
The National Aviary is home to more than 500 birds from around the world, many of them threatened or endangered in the wild.
Large walk-through habitats, including the newly renovated Grasslands, allow
for close interactions between visitors and free-flying birds. Immersive
experiences offer opportunities to meet species rarely found in zoos
up-close. Visitors can watch flamingos frolic; witness illusive owls
spread their wings; and hang out with a sloth.
Occupancy: 15 - 200
Area: 4,250 sf
