The Snake Park is part of the National Museum complex. It's a zoo of reptiles, including snakes, tortoises and crocodiles. Also a small aquarium.

Located within the same compound as the Nairobi National Museum, the Snake Park is a small one but has some large snakes to see. It could certainly benefit from maintenance but nevertheless it is worth visiting.

Interesting exhibit of snakes and reptiles, but not the best I have ever seen. Many large zoos in the U.S. do a better job of this.

The snake park near the Nairobi National Museum on museum hill is not worth a visit. The park is small and worn out. A lot of the terrariums are empty. The glass of the terrariums with a snake is very dirty. So, even when there...More

My first time to see a snake face-face was at snake park, thank God they were tamed.I was really terrified but it was such a great experience, there were many varieties of them some which are very beautiful.

I found this disgusting and depressing. The snakes are in small glass tanks and the giant cobras in a bit glass tank. Crocs and alligators are in spaces too small too. The reptiles do not look well.

If you need to have more knowledge about the snakes this is place to be.We need to educate our society about the importance of these reptile sin our ecosystems for the sake of our future generations.

You will see only a couple of snakes in very bad situation with a very bad smell in the air. Never worth it

There are separate tickets for the museum and the snake park or combined. We enjoyed the museum too so I would suggest you get a combination ticket. The prices are on their website which TripAdvisor will not let me post... More
