  • My parents took me to this museum since I was a baby, when I was 8 or 9 I got to hold a python. Pretty much grew up in Old Town. I make an effort to go at least every year, if not more. It's the largest collection of rattlesnakes in the world. The owner and curator, Bob, is one of the kindest people you will ever meet, take the time to talk to him and you'll find out some pretty cool facts. If you really want to see some desert wildlife up close, appreciate desert and appreciate some interesting historical exhibits, I recommend this place 100%.
  • This is a really neat place. I went for the first time about fifteen years ago and loved it then. This time was even better! The snakes are all healthy and in good flesh. There isn't that "retilian fug" that is often found in places with numerous reptiles housed in it. I also love that their snakes are not wild-caught. I spent many years working in exotic animal medicine so to be able to be up close to the wide variety of snakes there was a treat. Definitely not for those with a snake phobia but well worth the stop otherwise!
