Cool place for kids, I just wish their front staff was a little more active helping to explain the exhibits. When we went there, the four staff members were just lounging around in the front, while we were left to our wanderings.

My daughters and I spent the afternoon here when it was raining and it was very educational. My daughters loved it. The guides were very willing to tell us all about snakes. With the same entry tickets we were even allowed to come back in...More

The snakes and frogs were interesting to see, but a bit overpriced for what you get to see. The staff were helpful at finding some of snakes.

...But a bit small for what you pay. My 4 & 6 year old enjoyed seeing the snakes up close, and they do have quite a variety of local snakes and some very unique frogs. I thought it was a bit pricey at $45 usd...More

We were able to see lots of local snakes and some frogs that were impossible to see on our hikes. It’s a small place and you can see it all in about 45 minutes. So it may seem a bit pricey given how quick this...More

Not worth what they charge for admission. A wide variety of snakes & frogs, but really just in glass habitats. There was a “guide” and supposed tours every hour, but we weren’t there long enough see any tour going on.

While I'm not a big fan of snakes, this was still interesting to me to see the scary stuff that might be lurking under the bushes, without getting to close to the glass. Good selection of both venomous and non-venomous snakes along with some turtles...More
