Bird-safe windows installed on Bell Museum


The new Bell Museum of Natural History and Planetarium that is currently under construction in Falcon Heights features bird-safe fritted glass windows. Though less than 30 percent of the museum will be glass, the second-floor box window is 25 feet high by 80 feet wide. The museum opens summer 2018.

The fritted glass windows are screen printed with dot patterns to appear as solid surfaces to birds, which can often fly into reflective windows.

After Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium made headlines for its unsafe-for-avians glass finish, one of Falcon Heights’ newest additions is attempting to be a safer structure for the birds.
