Fodor's Review

Included in the largest collection of different species of living rattlers in the world are such rare and unusual specimens as an albino western diamondback. From the outside the museum looks for all the world like a plain old shop, but inside, the museum's exhibits, its engaging staff, and a video supply visitors with the lowdown on these venomous creatures—for instance, that they can't hear their own rattles and that the human death rate from rattlesnake bites is less than 1%. The mission here is to educate the public on the many positive benefits of rattlesnakes, and to contribute to their conservation.
