  • I hate snakes so much, but the kids wanted to go in. It's a small museum, but well curated. The snakes look well cared for, and there's interesting bits of history to see. The tickets double as "Certificates of Bravery", which I feel I definitely earned.
  • An amazing place!! Tons of history, live snakes, turtles & more! Very reasonably priced! Be sure to visit the Rattlesnake Museum! !
  • The museum is located in the old town of Albuquerque. It is quite small and I thought expensive for the time you can spend in there. There are a lot of rattle snakes and lots of information about them all. A lot of other reviews say that the snakes actually move and this is true for some but not necessarily all of them. I thought that the glass enclosures were quite small for some of the snakes although they looked healthy. There are also some exhibits on other reptile and a large cabinet with Steve Irwin memorabilia. The staff were nice.
  • Great little museum on the square in the old town section of Albuquerque. The curator is what really makes the place special. Be sure to stop in to this little gem!
  • It was really cool to see all the rattlesnakes and other reptiles. They had a bunch of cool facts and it would be a cool place to take kids.
