America’s only independent, indoor zoo dedicated entirely to birds. The National Aviary is wheelchair accessible. There are two wheelchairs available for loan on a first-come, first-served basis. Printed scripts are available from the Visitor Services Desk for free-flight productions. Assistive Listening Devices can be obtained upon entry to the Helen M. Schmidt FliteZone™ Theater from show ushers. The National Aviary offers high contrast way-finding and exhibit signage along with some braille. Service animals are allowed inside the National Aviary. Guests with service animals must be accompanied by an associate of the National Aviary in the free flight rooms. To ensure the safety of the birds, there are areas that service animals may not enter.
