“needs revamp”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Some interesting reptiles, but the place itself is very run down and needs a revamp. only spent half an hour here as the place made us feel uncomfortable, especially seeing the some of the animals in what appeard to be cramped conditions, would not recommend.

“Sadly in need of money!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Although there were some interesting animals/reptiles, the place was rather run down and looks as though it is struggling to keep going.

“Run down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Very poorly run, staff showed no interest in questions.
Open snake/Chameleon pit had no names. Snake exhibits were dirty and cramped very upsetting to see reptiles kept like this but it could be a funding issue. The Museum next door doesn't seem to suffer. Highlights were the birds seen there, Paradise Flycatchers and Sunbirds not the snakes which we really went to see.

I would recommend visit of snake park only in connection with visit of National museum. Whole facility is little bit out of date.
