The Rattlesnake Museum is an exciting and educational experience for the entire family. This animal conservation museum reveals the hundreds of ways that rattlesnakes and other "less desirable" animals have influenced our lives. Examples are given through artifacts, memorabilia, and the largest collection of different species of live rattlesnakes in the world. In fact, the Rattlesnake Museum hosts more different species than the Bronx Zoo, the Philadelphia Zoo, the National Zoo, the Denver Zoo, the San Francisco Zoo, and the San Diego Zoo, all combined! Species from North, Central, and South America are presented in beautifully recreated habitats. Myths are explored, phobias cured, and mysteries revealed at this must-see Museum of the Southwest. It's a wonderful way for your family to share in this fascinating, mysterious, and misunderstood corner of the animal kingdom.

You may have noticed that many of the rattlesnake species demonstrate colors and patterns that blend well with their environment. This cryptic coloration helps to conceal them from their prey and from other snake-eating predators. The snakes best defense is this ability to "disappear" among the rocks, soil and vegetation. Many tree dwelling snakes are green to blend with the foliage.

Besides having the largest collection of different species of rattlesnakes on public exhibit in the world, the museum is home to an astounding array of snake-related artwork, artifacts, and memorabilia.
