Mission Statement


The Parrot Museum is a place, devoted to the acquisition, conservation, study, exhibition, and educational interpretation of parrots having scientific, historical, or artistic value.

The Parrot Museum will educate the public about the history of the relationship between man and the parrot and of the roles of the parrot in contemporary society through engaging exhibitions, publications and educational programs as well as through the collection and conservation of pertinent artifacts. The Parrot Museum programs will be available to more visitors than ever through modern technology, and it is anticipated that visitors will seek to be more involved in the parrot industry through improved communication and innovative partnerships. Through its library, archive, and permanent collections, the Parrot Museum will also be a source of opportunities for research and scholarship in parrot studies.

The parrot has been at man’s side, serving him in peace and war for thousands of years and has long earned his place in history. Man’s partnership with this incredible creature deserves to be recorded and celebrated in its own museum.
