It hosts tones of information present day and pre-historical. Not clean but very informative. The snake park is small but hosts sizes of snake never seen before in live!

We were primarily interested in the National Museum, but you could buy a ticket to this attraction. In retrospect you can skip it. It has lots of snakes, reptiles, etc. Needs lot of work and really does not have any residents that one has not...More

Our guide was so nice and very good at answering questions, but personally I felt the animals did not have enough room.

The Snake Park is a below average exhibit of snakes, etc. The glass enclosed "tank-like" structures are unkempt, and the animals are OK, but not an enjoyable time. It is nice to see a large boa or cobra, but not enough to recommend the park.

if you like viewing "serpents" of all sizes, color, length...all you think about snakes, visit snake park. It is a bit scary, mostly because of the rattling and hissing, but it is safe because they are housed in glass...no worry!! Very exciting indeed.

As mentioned in the title, the black boa snake - which is one of the largest by the way - had its cage's roof wide open. Which is really disturbing from a security point of view.

The displays were appalling in my estimation. Most of the enclosures for the snakes, fish and other reptiles were extremely small, offering hardly any room for movement. The alligators and crocodiles pits are simple small gardens with a dirty concrete pool in the center. The...More

There are separate tickets for the museum and the snake park or combined. We enjoyed the museum too so I would suggest you get a combination ticket. The prices are on their website which TripAdvisor will not let me post... More
