Featuring over 700 bird specimens, the Bird Gallery has been a visitor favorite since 1908. The Gallery encompasses birds from around the world, from those found locally to the vibrant exotic birds found in the tropics. Several extinct and endangered species of bird, such as the passenger pigeon, whooping crane, and the ivory-billed woodpecker, are represented. Many birds were prepared by Museum founder Dr. Isaiah Fawkes Everhart over a century ago and were gifted to the public from his collection.

In addition to the expansive bird collection on display, the gallery includes four lifelike dioramas of native Pennsylvania habitats, as well as several cases of assorted mammals, reptiles, and amphibians from the Museum’s taxidermy collections.
