  • I cannot believe in this day & age that such a place is allowed to operate! The poor creatures here are in either small fish tanks with no means of getting out of the water, or horrendous concrete pen...  read more »
  • It is not a real museum, or close to a zoo or anything like this. It's a disgusting small place ran by an old lady and her son, with old dirty tanks and a small pond. She is just trying to make some c...  read more »
  • Really sad experience here, the tortoises and turtles were kept in tiny tanks with no stimulation and often no water. The 'free' roaming ones appeared to be very hungry. An animal welfare nightmare. W...  read more »
  • A must go spot for turtle lover like me 💋 Turtle walks around freely and eat the grass freely! So happy to have a view like this! I read news that this place is organized by a father and daughter who love turtle so much. Thank you for being so many lovely turtle to share with us. A reasonable entrance fee is required. Good for family to bring their children to come and teach them about turtle and to treasure them. I remembered that there is a big turtle in black who loved to being touched 😘 One stars is being deducted is the water for the fish is very dirty...
  • An interesting museum to check out in the heartlands. Get to see free to roam turtles and rare tortoises. Not a huge place, but can spend around 2 hours to enjoy being surrounded by chelonians.
  • Beautiful views and great architecture. You can enjoy watching live and colorful fish.
  • It was cute at first, coming in and being greeted by turtles walking around. I didn't feel like buying vegetables to feed, but the kind lady in the front gave me a couple cabbages to give them anyway. But then I actually took a look around, and the conditions the turtles live in are just, sad. Most of them are kept in either empty, dirty pools or they are individually kept in small aquariums. One of the turtles was described to be "beautifully marked by the star" on his shell, but it was infected and there were a bunch of holes on his shell. When I walked out, the turtle that had greeted me in the beginning was dripping a lot blood from its mouth. I walked to the lady in the front desk to tell her, and either she didn't understand what I was trying to tell her, or she didn't really care. I think she said he was fine, but he was dripping in blood, from his mouth, I dont think he was fine.... I would like to give this place a good review, considering the variety of turtles and the kindness of the workers, but what I saw literally scarred me. Given the current living conditions and care given to these turtles, I would definitely not recommend visiting this museum.
  • Aesthetically pleasing. Just good for strolling on lazy days and maybe lying back to read on weekends.Very well maintained. Zero facilities are provided.
