This place was alright. We got a couple of nice pictures, and my son liked watching the birds. However, I can't imagine why anybody would buy an annual membership, or even pay full price.

My family was gifted a season pass to Tracy Aviary this year, and we've happily visited a dozen times in the first six months. We always bring visiting family and friends here and easily spend 2+ hours each visit. My young son loves watching the birds, especially in the daily bird show. This is the cleanest and least smelly aviary... More

Wonderful Salt Lake City attraction. Displays are easy to access and good explanations of the birds. The Aviary is located in a park- - bring a picnic lunch for before or after seeing the birds. So much to enjoy.

Nice little ZOO at the Liberty Park. A lot of little birds as well as some larger species. Good little fun outing with family. Definitely fun for kids :)

Tracy Aviary has a wide range of birds of all sizes and from numerous locales around the world. The bird show was a lot of fun, you got to see them close up, such as a macaw, hawk, vulture, and roadrunner. The place is clean and well-kept, with some indoor exhibits as well as outdoor.

We had a great time at this aviary. What a well planned and enjoyable place. The staff was very willing to share info about the facility and animals. The birds seem well cared for and happy. They have discount days. Look at their website. Don't miss the little stuffed birds with their real life bird calls in the store. Two... More

Have been in the same aviary in the 90's, return now and was impressed how well it expanded, new pavilions, very nice variety of birds. Love them all, most impressed with owls that are so difficult to see in the wild.

I have enjoyed every visit to Tracy Aviary - But last August was the best! As I walked back to the Gift Shop, two of the condor handlers were walking in the same direction with their best avian buddy. I was privileged to walk with them and watch TA's magnificent condor trot along side - A moment I will never... More

The aviary is very clean, and the animals appear to be well taken care of. I was happy to see the variety of birds, and that they had clean areas and water. The eagles are beautiful and regal!

I visit the aviary almost weekly. They have beautiful grounds. Interesting exhibits and birds. Most of all they have a great staff. I've had great experiences asking some of the employees questions about the birds and have always left feeling more knowledgeable.
