About a 30 min drive from Winona, MN. Check the website for presentation times and plan on spending time to look at the artwork sent in from around the world and the exhibits. Definitely worth...

I luckily arrived in time for the presentation. Very information and there were live owls! The presentations takes a little over an hour ... there are other helpful exhibits and a gift shop.

My family drove 2.5 hours here to surprise my mom for her birthday. Seeing an owl in person was on her bucket list. This trip did not disappoint. She was so surprised. We had so much fun learning about owls! Staff was super friendly, informative, knowledgeable, passionate and really made our trip here memorable. We met 3 owls! My son got to do a scavenger hunt inside the center. He got to hold and feel different fathers. We read owl books. We pledged to do things to help keep owls safe. There was also a very cute section where owl things were being sold….owl shirts, hand painted owl decor, owl puzzles, owl books for all ages, owl art by kids across the world, owl pens, jewelry, soap, etc. This center was in a cool old building that was quaint and definitely loved. I did see a sign for a new building though. Overall fun trip for kids and adults. Just seeing an owl so colors was in itself very very cool! Thank you to all who talked with us today!
This place was a hoot, and yes I do mean that as a pun! The center is absolutely worth a visit to learn more about owls, with so many fun surprises & treasures inside, which I won’t spoil here. Thanks, Jo, for making our visit so special and inspiring!
