Fun place for kids and adults

Fun time for kids. There are 2 sections - one for reptiles, the other for amphibians and insects. A separate area for petting tortoises.

We always take our grandchildren to the reptile zoo. I've been there at least 12 times and still enjoy the variety and ever expanding displays.

My grandchildren love going to the Reptile Zoo. Their presentations in schools and the community are very informative and the staff is very knowledgeable. My highlight is holding a variety of snakes when possible. The reptiles look very healthy. Come on in!

Having visited several zoos, reptile houses, and a serpentarium or two, the Washington Serpentarium has the most complete and fun collection of snakes and reptiles I have ever seen. We (my son, grandson, and I) are snake people and the “kids” weekly visit a reptile store in our city. All of us (including my wife) were amazed at the variety... More

I stopped here with my girlfriend for a few in hours back in April 2012. This is essentially a small zoo with exotic reptiles. They probably have a total of 30-40 different exhibits of reptiles, amphibians, arachnids, or other insects. They let you touch some of the turtle/tortoises. They also will let you hold certain snakes while they supervise. It... More

The place is dirty not kept clean for the animals, animals look like they live in dirty spaces that are cramped. My feeling is the place needs an inspection SOON!!!!!! Some animals looked sickly to us.??

I took my 3yr old son to the reptile zoo and we both loved it. They have some amazing snakes and lizards. We both really enjoyed the albino reptiles, there is just something so beautiful about them.

This is an indoor zoo filled with many different kinds of reptiles: snakes, iguanas, turtles, alligators and crocodiles! Great information and up close viewing. Turtles can be touched and, if you ask and are there at the right time (not allowed just before feeding time!), you can even hold some snakes! It's a bit smelly inside, but be sure to... More
