“Edisto - Serpentarium”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

My husband took our two boys, 7 and 5 for a break from the beach and they all loved it! It was well maintained and the boys especially loved the hands on stuff. Lots of shade and indoor exhibits, so during the heat wave it was nice for such a hot day.

“fun for kids”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

A privately owned and managed zoo. The owners really care about snakes (why?) Anyway, the snake show is very interesting. A little pricey, probably because it is privately owned, but worth a stop. Best for kids 7 and older.

“A nice way to spend a couple of hours!”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Our 4 year old loves all things reptilian so we made the one hour drive from Kiawah. We were not disappointed. The drive itself was through marshlands and oaks on back country roads. The serpentarium was clean and well done. Some of the exhibits are inside- which is nice on a hot day. The outside exhibits are mostly shady and pleasant. And we didnt see a single mosquito! There is an outdoor covered theatre for lectures/ presentations. We saw an alligator feeding at Green Pond. There is a snack bar and a gift shop. It is somewhat small, but we were glad it was something we could do in a couple of hours. It was a nice break from the beach!

“~Over-Priced~”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

I thought the serpentarium was over-priced for no more than an attraction that was there. My kids seen everything there was to see in less than 1hr. For what they are charging looks like they could keep the grounds a little better. Fencing is broken and sagging in areas, Parking lot could use a good debis removal. We drove up and visited Charleston for a day. Kids had a better time at Charlestowne landing and seen more animals, for a fraction of the cost. Family of 4 was approx . 22.00 vs the 50.00 for the serpentarium.

“A good break”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

We went to the serpentarium based on TripAdvisor reviews, and are glad we did. All the displays and habitats are nicely designed, and we appreciated that it was self-paced. The snake habitats outside were outstanding, and made for really good photo opportunities. I recommend it. (We appreciated the shaded parking, too.)
