This place has lots of snakes to look at, mostly rattlers but others as well. I never knew there were so many different kinds of rattlers but there are and the museum has them.

We loved the different exhibits, so many different snakes and animals. The price is a little high for the size but the staff was polite and answered questions, there was a movie explaining different things. Over all it was enjoyable and will go back again.

Didn't know what to expect but wow - what a collection of rattlesnakes. Some were huge. We wandered around and looked at all the snakes, and were amazed at the variety. This was definitely a hit with my family.

Our family consisted of 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 3 children. It is s quirky looking little museum/gift shop. They have an excellent collection of snakes which the we all enjoyed. They also have lots of unique souvenirs and some interesting hands-on activities. In the back section, they have a wonderful video that plays and it is very entertaining and... More
