  • What a great place to go in Wilmington. It is very extensive and very well done. Each snake enclosure is very nice, very clean and the snakes are in excellent shape. They had a lot of snakes. They also had the largest snakes of each variety that I have ever seen and I enjoy the snake exhibits at zoos. This place has all the zoos in the country beat.
  • This is a unique and interesting little destination. The $9 entrance fee might seem high, but your ticket is good for several days and the habitats and displays are very high-quality. They have a wide variety of snakes and other reptiles. I have never seen so many bushmasters in one place. It's kid-friendly and pet-friendly, so you can come in with your dog or cat on a leash if you want to. I thought that was kind of cool. Going to the Serpentarium was a fun and educational experience for me, and I think it'd be a great place for reptile-lovers of all ages to drop by.
  • Very friendly staff, met the curator and his wife. Kids were amazed & it was well worth the visit! Would definitely go again. I would guess there were at least 100 snakes & a few turtles, alligators, crocodiles, iguanas. Creepy a bit at feeding time but really interesting & the info plagues at each enclosure were very informative.
  • If either you or your children are fascinated with snakes and reptiles, this is a unique and outstanding place to visit! It's well worth the modest entry fee! Don't be put off by the odd staff; this isn't Disneyland. I've never seen a more deadly collection of vipers, rattlesnakes, cottonmouths, green and black mambos, bushmasters, and many other serpents from around the world. They also have a snapping turtle that's bigger than a truck wheel, and a couple of crocodiles that can *jump* a couple of feet from the water the the banks of their enclosures.
  • This place was super cool! The kids loved it and so did the adults! Definitely worth the time and money.
