A good add on to the Museum

Old and run down... good if you want to see the snakes but buy the combo with the Museum as the 1200 schilling is not worth it as a separate ticket but the 300 is!

Most of the snakes particularly the boomslangs were in awful conditions, in tiny aquariums with no hides or anywhere to rest besides a single branch. Ontop of this, you can see dead, diseased and emaciate feeder chameleons stuck in tanks and even in the open air enclosure (which was the only positive part of the park).

Visting the snake park together with the National Museum is a good thing. You can seethe snakes, fish and turtles in safe environment.

My son likes snakes, so we decided to take him to see them while visiting the National Museum. He loved the 30 minutes of so it took to see various snakes; most of them displayed in fish tank type enclosures. I guess you cannot display them any other way, but it was really depressing and it did not seem that... More

you can see many snakes from Kenyan wildlife but they are showed in a very boring way. Their "cages" are ´not nice and I think the staff should be more active and informative

The displays here are quite sad. In particular those of the two crocodiles and the aquariums. The official price is 1200KES for foreigners which is many times too high. At 300KES, as combined with the national museum (1500 total) it is perhaps a different way to spend half an hour or so.
