A museum with a wide range of information about birds and almost anything you want to know about them are enclosed inside the centre. Different kinds of feathers were displayed and each has it's own unique feature. The skeletal system of a bird will surely capture your attention, they seemed like baby dinousars. Now that I'm thinking about it, it reminds of a childhood movie "The Land before Time"

I've seen a penguin from one of their displays, I just hope it's not real. I just saw those cute penguins awhile ago and here in front me is lifeless one. There are more interesting things you can learn and do inside the centre, one would be to touch an egg of an ostrich in a corner of the room, you can't touch those eggs in a real ostrich setting or you'll be dead meat.
