I want to see an owl.

Not for me, but for my best friend. We live in Western Mass (Pioneer Valley) and I just recently learned that, despite her deep affinity for owls, she's never actually seen one. She blames growing up in an urban area of Florida. I grew up in New Hampshire, but even for me they were a fairly rare sight.
What's the best way to see an owl in the wild? Nighttime, right? In a field? or in the woods? Is there a better time of year? I think even hearing one would be exciting, but seeing one would be incredible.
Also, if any Massachusetts peeps know of a cool place to see owls in captivity that'd be cool, too. I just don't want to take her to a zoo to see a sleeping lump of brown in a corner, you know? Owls are way too awesome for that.
