  • Small but has a lot of reptiles, facts, and spiders to view. Videos to watch and everything is kid friendly with steps for kids to view. 
  • A fun and inexpensive little museum (I think it costs $2 to get in). There are live rattlesnakes and scorpions and merchandise and a short video. It's in Oldtown and a nice way to break up the day dow...  read more »
  • I visit every time I'm in Albuquerque. It's not only interesting, but great conservation and interpretation for kids. Must see if you are in town. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Went with a 10 year old and he LOVED it. Bob (the owner) was really engaging and informative and really went the extra mile to make sure we had a great visit. To quote the 10 year old " best day ever".
  • It's a little bit touristy but it rather had to be, based on it's location. But. It's also a fascinating place and wonderful place that is entertaining, educational and a welcome addition to the other stores and venues in Old Town.
