This museum was fairly interesting but the admission fee seemed high for what they offered. Some interesting exhibits but seeing caged animals... even snakes and frogs ...was a bit sad. Otters were pretty cute and entertaining. Didn’t care for the vultures feeding on the dead carcass statue but that’s me. Overall I give it a meh but pretty educational for kids and maybe it’s just not my cup of tea.

Beautifully designed, with the right mix of educational (material to read and study) with experiential through observing live animals. Part indoors, part outdoors, for a nice stroll through the forest. There is a great raptor exhibit, and flying demonstrations at certain times of year. I’ve always enjoyed the gift store too!

Even with the pandemic, the OHDM continues to over a very high-quality learning experience for everyone in the family. We visited shortly after they re-opened and were very impressed with visitor flow and management, as well as the exhibits. We always enjoy the changing exhibits as well as the static ones.

You wouldn’t expect Bend to have such a high quality museum that constantly adds to its experience. It’s not a Smithsonian but it’s pretty close in content and presentation.
