The 18,000 square-foot space first had its grand opening in June 2019, but the pandemic forced it to close several times over the last year.
.This beautiful museum is full of interesting and fun information on birds and is the perfect place to explore and learn as a family. It is home to two galleries for art and conservation, permanent exhibits, and multi-sensory experiences.
The exhibits teach “people why birds are so amazing,” said Carrie Barron, the center’s manager. “Their adaptations, why they can fly, how owls are good at camouflage.”
The center also encompasses the original three-story farmhouse that was constructed in 1762, nature trails along the Perkiomen Creek, and the bird enclosure that is home to the center’s resident birds.
The center will now be open Thursday to Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., while the trails are open each day from dawn until dusk.
