I love visiting Tracy Aviary. I'm a membership holder which means I've seen everything more than a few times but it is a great, wide-open place to let the kids run and be free. They've got great exhibits and I love that the peacocks are able to roam wild. There is always a shady area to stop and have a... More

First, there are 3 dining areas in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. The one on the main level is the least expensive and the food is good. If you're looking for discounted eating however, you won't find it in any of the 3 eateries. Inside the expansive entry hall is a remarkable statue of Joseph Smith and there's plenty of... More

This newly refurbished aviary is a wonderful experience for families. The bird shows are especially exciting for children.

Tracy Aviary is little but pleasant for children. I don't think it's a place for a season pass because there isn't that much to see or do. Nice for a brief visit in my opinion.

We had a Saturday to occupy and needed to entertain a 16 year old boy and a 13 year old boy. Tracy Aviary had enough variety to keep them going and looking at the next species.

3 hours is not enough to take your granddaughter here! The upgrades and layout is fantastic even if you don't really like birds. You owe to yourself to check this out!

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
