American International Rattlesnake Museum
When you walk through the doors of this Old Town museum and shop, you may find yourself warily glancing behind the door. But there are no snakes slithering about the store: their crawl space is in the back room where you will find the most complete collection of live rattlesnake species in the world. Admission to the museum is $1 for children and $2 for adults. Once you have toured the museum, return to the gift shop where rattlesnake memorabilia is the buzz. Just try and get through the front door without buying a Rattlesnake Museum logo T-shirt.

Our Families Favorite!

We really enjoyed our visit to Albuquerque, but the Rattlesnake Museum made our trip memorable. The kids are still talking about it as their favorite destination and my wife and I are equally taken by its creative, educational displays. We all wear our Rattlesnake Museum t-shirts with pride and with fond memories.
Good things come in small packages. This is Albuquerque's small but wonderful centerpiece. If you plan a trip to the southwest, you MUST visit the Rattlesnake Museum in Albuquerque!!!
The Rattlesnake Museum is a one of a kind experience. The quality of the live rattlesnake exhibits, rivals that of the best zoos in the world. Bob Myers was a biology teacher turned curator, of this unique collection of rattlesnakes. The museum is a blend of zoo and rattlesnake artifacts, as well as handcrafted Native American art objects. A typical day sees boy scout troops, students, and tourists from every corner of the globe. It's an eductional exhibit, that retains the Old Town charm.
I live in Albuquerque,and have been visiting the Rattlesnake Museum for over ten years. This is not the old roadside pit "SEE LIVE SNAKES" . This is the real thing. Bob Meyers has an amazing knowlege of the subject and a great love for his work. When we have out of town visitors, the museum is a must see part of our tour of Albuquerque. It is a great educational opportunity for kids and grown-ups alike.
