    This is more of a zoo and botanical garden than museum, although there are many reptile artifacts, there are also MANY live snakes and reptiles on display in displays (aquariums) which are meticulousl...  more »

    Excellent live snake collection, almost the largest collection in the world ? Beautiful collection of snakes.

    Very interesting display of live fauna among the flora. Lots of locally made jewelry and baskets.

    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 interesting to see all sorts of desert critters. It was like going to a snake house at the zoo. Also, the gift shop had interesting things and although the prices were those of a gift shop, they were not exorbitant.
