The National Aviary is America’s only independent indoor nonprofit zoo dedicated to birds, and was recently named Pennsylvania’s Best Zoo according to Yelp reviewers. Located on Pittsburgh’s historic Northside, the National Aviary is home to 550 birds representing more than 150 diverse species from around the world, many of them threatened or endangered in the wild. The National Aviary’s large walk-through habitats create an intimate, up-close interaction between visitors and free-flying birds, including opportunities to hand-feed and to meet many species rarely found in zoos. Hours of operation are 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily except for Tuesdays. For tickets and more information visit www.aviary.org.
