I have taken a large group through and you could do all of the exhibits in 2 hours. But you could stay longer if you take in one of the bird shows.

Between 1.5 and 3 hours, depending on how slow you go through the exhibits and if you take food breaks.

About 1.5 to 3 hours depending on how much time you spend with each exhibit. If photography is your hobby, three hours is almost ample!

You could see everything either in the morning or in the afternoon. No more than 4 hours at a slow pace.

Depends on whether you want a casual overview or linger at the exhibits or add special encounters. If you do a walk through plan on an hour, but would recommend at least an hour and a half - try to schedule some of the encounters like feeding the birds. Would highly recommend viewing the website and scheduling some of the exhibits to take advantage of all the Aviary has to offer. Also be sure to check because often on Tuesdays, there is staff training and the Aviary is closed.

Depending on if you do any feedings, we've only spent up to 2 hours there, and that was with 2 grandchildren.

I didn’t expect to spend as much time there as we did. It would be easy to breeze through in an hour of so. But be sure to check the schedule for feedings and shows and take advantage of those for the full experience.

I would suggest two hours; however, you move at your own pace. There are many wonderful areas in which you can really get caught-up in observing everything around you so that time slips by.
