    Fascinating
    A large of variety of interesting birds that are easy to see and photograph. Many fly free and whiz past and land close by. Some other fascinating animals (snakes, tarantulas, etc.) The 'museum' that starts off the tour is an odd assortment of items. We visited on a weekday before March Break and it was busy enough. I imagine that at the height of the tourist season it could get crowded and probably less enjoyable.

    Lovely place to see exotic birds
    This place is a delight for bird lovers. The indoor aviaries are just extraordinary. I enjoyed the small bird aviary which has charming birds, many of whom are in pairs and busy building nests. The main aviary is spacious with beautiful, free-roaming exotic birds and a man-made waterfall. Some of these birds are quite loud and are not afraid of humans. This main aviary is where they also offer lorikeet feedings for a small additional fee. Be aware that the lorikeets might choose to perch on your head, shoulders, or arms. Bird Kingdom also has non-avian creatures such as turtles, Egyptian fruit bats, toads, snakes, and an adorable axolotl. My only critique is that this facility could use some updating in certain areas. Also they could benefit from more staff to better monitor for unruly unattended children who I witnessed throwing rocks and dirt at the birds. Otherwise I highly recommend Bird Kingdom. It is very conveniently located near the Rainbow bridge for those travelers visiting Niagara Falls. There is a discount on tickets if you purchase online.

    A Must Do at the Falls
    Amazing aviary experience. Lovely environment and beautiful birds. We've come here several times over the last 15 years and have always been impressed. Be sure to check out the Javanese Tea House inside the large aviary. It's a stunning work of art.

    Fun for all ages
    I booked this online (recommend). It is a great place for everyone. Kids loved it. Adults loved it. You get close to all kinds of birds (but don’t touch them). They also have tortoises, turtles, bats, snakes. Be sure to sign up for the Lorikeet feeding. They hop onto you and drink out of a cup. Some have mentioned that the price seems too High. This is Canada! Everything costs more here. For $17.95 it was worth it. I recommend it.

    Fabulous Experience for Bird Lovers
    Walking through the aviaries with all the beautiful birds was a unique experience. A bird squawked loudly, and we enjoyed seeing this beautiful, large brown bird just feet from us in a tree, then strutting past us. Be sure to pay extra to feed the Lorikeet, as it is a fun experience. There are so many beautiful birds, and species I had never seen before! Go early so there are fewer people. The museum is lots of fun as well. I suggest preparing for two hours there if you really like birds and want to enjoy watching them.

    Unexpected surprise
    The weekend my girlfriend and I went to Niagara Falls was one that ended up raining for most of the weekend. We had another tour planned, but it ended up being cancelled. Instead, we came to the bird sanctuary. At first, we were a little weary with the cost, as we started to walk through, thinking “why did we pay for this?” However, the further we went into the sanctuary, the better it got. It wasn’t until we finally found the aviary, where the marvel truly began. Birds flying all over! It was truly spectacular! Give it a shot; you will not be disappointed!

    Not Forthcoming With All Available Discounts
    We visited the Bird Kingdom and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a fun experience, everything was clean and organized. My only disappointment was they encourage the use of the online discount before arrival and I noticed that they offer a CAA discount. The CAA discount is also valid for AAA members but since I bought online the woman in back came out front and told me they couldn't adjust my ticket purchase. The online discount was $2 and the CAA/AAA discount was 20%. So I could have saved almost double for my 4 tickets with AAA. Don't make the same mistake I did.

    Beautiful, well cared for animals
    A wonderful exhibit to get close to and appreciate the beauty of different birds. A few other animals as well that were interesting to see. The Lorikeet feeding was fun! The animals are treated well and cared for. Some of the animals there were surrendered by previous owners, so it’s encouraging that they have a good home. A simple attraction that was entertaining for a few hours and we felt like we were helping to support the animals they took in. Staff were great with the animals and there is covered parking close by.

    Awesome visit 🦅
    An awesome visit to see birds up close , we all had a fabulous time including my four year old GS who got to feed the birds. The place is indoors, goes on forever and has lots of free flying beautiful birds and a small museum and a fabulous gift shop where we got awesome souvenirs and of course excellent staff. 🤩

    Amazing experience for our little ones!
    We went here with our two little ones (1.5 and 3) on a weekend in January 2024. We absolutely loved it. Beautiful and unique experience. Felt very tropical and warm especially during the winter months. Loved seeing all the birds and other animals. We had so much fun and the kids loved running through the 'Bird kingdom'. We would go back again!! Unfortunately, the timing didn't work out for the bird feeding (where the birds will come and eat our of your hands) but next time we go back we will definitely make a point to do it!! Thank you for this beautiful experience!

I haven’t been here since I was a kid, so I decided to revisit but take my fiance there for the first time. It still holds up and is still so much fun! So many amazing birds and other creatures to look at and talk to. The staff there were super friendly and knowledgeable and made our experience there that much better. The $5 to be able to feed the birds was well worth it as you will literally be covered with birds all over your arms and shoulders. We also went at a time where it was super slow, so if you wanna walk through with less of a crowd, the best time to go is on a Sunday at 3:30. Felt very good knowing that everything is very humane and the birds are not always kept in small cages, most of the time they’ll be in the main atrium which is huge and has plenty of flying space.

We bought the tickets on Groupon which was at a bit of a discount. Still expensive even with that. They asked us if you wanted to buy a ticket to feed the birds which are kids of course wanted to do that. That was an extra $5 each with a time frame to feed them. But by the time you got up there they didn't tell you where it was we only had a half an hour left and there was about eight other people in front of us. That was a bit disappointing as well as when we got in there to feed them it was a little tiny cup with liquid in to feed the birds. It was actually less than a shot glass... We live in the Niagara region they should even give a discount for living there.
Kids did love the birds - but no show or anything.
Way overrated wouldn't spend the money to go back.....

It is in an older building but does have an elevator. The rooms are all nice. The big aviary is very nice. A wide variety of birds.

I usually only take time to really commend businesses that go above and beyond to make sure the customers experience is special. I have to say this experience was such a let down. The birds are beautiful. The staff was horribly rude to my family and I, even boarder line discriminatory but truly that is not why I am even writing this review. They close at 6:30. We were informed of that prior to entering and purchasing tickets. It was 5:20 when we entered. My children and I were enjoying the experience when at 6:15 an employee approached us to inform us of closing time and urged us through the room into the last room of the open aviary. As I was taking pictures I noticed she was following and stalking our every move. So I asked if she was following she responded that she “had to do her job” and they were closing. I looked at my watch and advised her that they were not currently closed and I am a paying customer and she need not to following and stalk my family and I. She refused and continued follow us (only us) although there were other families in the aviary and the time was 6:20 (I know this based on picture stamps). I approached the manager at the end of the experience to discuss the uncomfortable and unprofessional behavior and she was dismissive and advised me she sent the employee to us. Didn’t bother to escalate or discuss any resolution or ask for any of my info. I wasn’t even looking for anything other then some professionalism and courtesy. This place was a let down and it was our first stop into Niagara after being on the road for so long. It’s a tourist tramp and you might even experience some discrimination. I’d say skip it and go somewhere your appreciated as a paying customer.
