This little place has a variety of cases of snakes and spiders and was fun to go through but was only a one room museum. For the entrance fee of $4 a person I feel it should have been a bit bigger, cleaner and more...More

This is a place where you can see the largest collection of rattlesnakes. It's fun for kids to look at and cheap entertainment. The guy will answer questions but he's a little strange. Nice though. He said the owner just found out he had leukemia...More

This place will give you the chills but the owner is very knowledgeable about his snakes. He even has three albino rattlesnakes. It was good to see some of the other snakes that were poisonous just in case you happen across them while out walking....More

This place is a dive but he actually has a great variety of rattlers. I absolutely hate snakes and get creeped out by them but I am fascinated at the same time. He has rattlers that I have never seen. I like to be educated...More
