    I would like to take my 13 month old in for a self guided tour. Do I have to schedule it in advance or can we just come in?

    Are you open for guided tours for a girl scout group on Fridays around 4? It would be around 10 girls

    • Katrina Bergman says:

      Hi Kerry, that definitely sounds like something we could do. You just have to call ahead and get in touch with Steve Martin to schedule it, our number is (781) 682-4878 and you can just ask for him when you call.

    Can I come on a tour with the girl I baby sit or do I have to be with a parent ?

    • Jack Banagis says:

      Hey Hannah,
      People of all ages are welcome to come tour our facilities. As a babysitter you are the supervisor of those you babysit, which means yes, If you are comfortable with bringing them down to the Center then you are welcome to bring anyone you feel would like to visit us!

    Good afternoon! I was hoping to be able to come by tomorrow afternoon for a self-guided tour. Are you open on Saturdays for this? What times are you open for self-guided tours? Thank you!

    • Katrina Bergman says:

      Hi Christina, Yes, the Center is open 7 days a week, 10-4 for tours. You are always welcome to explore on your own. If you would like to book guided tour, please call ahead. But if you just walk in we will be happy to give you a guided tour is a volunteer or staff person is available. Come on down!

    If i took a tour could i meet an owl? If not, how can i meet an owl?

    • Katrina Bergman says:

      Hi Pat, We do not have any resident education owls at this time. I am not sure if we have any owl patients in the hospital right now. You can’t get close to any of the patients because they are wild and being cared for in the hospital. But you can take a tour of our hospital and facility and see wildlife being helped. If you are really interested in seeing only an owl today, I would suggest that you visit our sister organization, the South Shore Natural Science Center. They have a long time resident owl named Hedwig. New England Wildlife Center provides all the veterinary care for the animals at South Shore Natural Science Center, Museum of Science and other groups. It’s a great partnership and they are a terrific group – they are located in Norwell. Hope to see you soon. Have a great day.
