  • OMG! I was completely blown away at how good this stop was! At first I thought is was going to be just a cheesy roadside, tourist trap. I couldn't have been more wrong. The displays are first rate and the detailing impeccable. It rivals many top notch natural history museums, while maybe not in size... the quality was on par. Spoiler alert: there are live snakes here, safely and beautifully displayed. I never knew there so many different rattle snakes. I'm told this place may have the largest collection in the world. Who knew such a gem would be hidden away here. *** Highly recommend
  • Very cool place
