About Us:
The Rattlesnake Museum is an exciting and educational experience for the entire family. This animal conservation museum reveals the hundreds of ways that rattlesnakes and other "less desirable" animals have influenced our lives. Examples are given through artifacts, memorabilia, and the largest collection of different species of live rattlesnakes in the world. In fact, the Rattlesnake Museum hosts more different species than the Bronx Zoo, the Philadelphia Zoo, the National Zoo, the Denver Zoo, the San Francisco Zoo, and the San Diego Zoo, all combined! Species from North, Central, and South America are presented in beautifully recreated habitats. Myths are explored, phobias cured, and mysteries revealed at this must-see Museum of the Southwest. It's a wonderful way for your family to share in this fascinating, mysterious, and misunderstood corner of the animal kingdom.

It was an interesting museum. The snakes were cool to see, but still scary to see them that close. The large turtles were awesome to see. It was educational to see where most snakes resided in the country and world. However since this was a field trip, I probably would not have chosen to come here on my own. It was overall a nice (but a little scary) change to my daily activities.

I enjoyed my visit so much I bought a really nice coffee mug! Large collection of venomous snakes, as well as other critters. They give a lot of information about the snakes, not just about the species in general but also the background of each snake. Cost of admission includes a certificate of bravery, which I found amusing. A bit tourist trappy but I would definitely go again. Anyone brave enough to go with me? I dare you!

These folks are passionate about what they do and their work is very important. I would love to see an exhibits overhaul. The museum is half living collection and half cabinet of curiosities. Great for kids and those young at heart.

It is a cool museum, but it is rather Small. They boast the most species of any other rattlesnake museum, but they only have 20 or so on display. Nevertheless, it is cheap and it is cool to see the snakes. I would probably go at least once to see it.

This wasn't my type of museum. Looked like a garage stuffed full of random stuff with a majortity of that stuff being geared towards snakes and the other stuff just random stuff. The snakes were cool and the info presented on each was interesting...but all the other stuff I just didn't "get." One visit is enough...if you're on the fence, I would pass.
