Rattle Snake Museum Reviews & Ratings
What a fun and interesting stop! Not a huge place, but jam packed with great information, memorabilia, and educational information. Animals are well taken care of, and the staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. They are great with groups, and have a large souvenir shop. The location in Old Town is directly across from a parking lot that makes it easily accessible and convenient.
I’ve been wanting to come to this place for a few years now. It’s an amazing place with a ridiculously large number of live rattlesnakes with tons of information and very kind and knowledgeable staff. It’s a must see for anyone interested in herpetology, but it’s great even for people who have no prior knowledge of reptiles! 10/10 would come here again if given the chance. If you’re in Albuquerque, stop through this gem of a museum!
I am so bummed. Hours are not updated online and I brought my friend and her 4 year old from New York City, only to find the door locked and a sign posted that they are closed on Mondays. Meanwhile, their online hours say open today. I have been here before and loved it and had the best time. Super bummed!
Small, but interesting place right in old town area. They have many live snakes to show with tons of information about them both written and on video. Pleasant and friendly staff.
Great spot. Wonderful variety of rattlesnakes and other creepy crawlies. Yes they are live and no you can not handle them. Other interesting displays. Well worth the time and very educational.
