  • We were walking down the sidewalk when my husband suddenly grabbed my hand and we were inside the museum. As he paid for tickets I cringed and said aloud to the clerk "My heart is racing! I'm not sure what he's getting me into!" She replied "Just know, everyone survives!" I guess I was to be relieved? In the end I did survive AND I SERIOUSLY enjoyed it. I had no idea there were so many types of rattle snakes. There's a wonderful educational piece on each snake's tank; top explanation for adults bottom for children. I also watched the attendent separate snakes so they could be fed. That even your kids should see! All in all, extremely informative, well organized, with kid tables to play and learn about the exhibit as well.
  • My hubby wanted to go to the museum on our honeymoon in 2015. Was pleasantly surprised. Very informative and interesting. Great to look at the snakes up close. The Steve Irwin memorial was cool to see as an Aussie.
  • Odd place. Snakes look well kept but everything is centered around buying trinkets. There is junk everywhere, under tables over head on shelves and various random toys for sale everywhere. At least there are cards with pretty good information on each snake.
  • Really educational. But in a fun way. Cool merchandise and a great little museum with tons of rattle snakes and facts on all the different species.
  • I drove from Boston to California...this place was the best money i spent on the whole trip!!!! 30+ rattlesnakes.....I'm going back soon to take more photos!
