  • Here is located a research center related to the snakes. There is here a snake nursery used for extraction of poisons for production of vaccines against this reptile bites. A while ago the facilities for research and production of poisons was the victim of a fire. Was being resconstruido. I don't know if you've finished and this reopened to the public.

  • The location as well as being a reference in scientific research, has a beautiful park and several attractions, such as biological, microbiological and museums of history. Is due for having only a small cafeteria inside the site. For those who like biology is highly recommended.

  • I love animals, I love this place is beautiful, well-kept garden, quiet place to stroll with children and easy to access. Has a small museum with some specimens of snakes, many snakes alive and beautiful. To enter the Museum pays a small fee, but there is a fenced off with some loose snakes in this surrounded, is quite interesting, well worth making that visit and meet the snakes and a little of the history of Vital Brazil.

  • One of the world most respectful research institutes for poisonous animals. At the sane time, very impressive exhibition of living snakes, vipers and spiders. Entrance fee: R$ 6,00.
  • This place is a part of history of Brazil. The Architecture, museum and etc.
  • I hate snakes 🐍 but I think you should visit here.

  • Good place to take kids, because there are spaces in the Museum precisely so that they learn of didactic form. Are 3 museums, serpertario and macacario. Ample green space and quiet. Reserve a day to go, take the children because worth!! Just made me sad a few snakes at the Museum seemed to be stressed, not imitated exactly your habitat, and the small size for your length, review the conditions so that they are the most comfortable.
