Reptiland at first seems priced reasonably. But the museum is very small. The animals have small and barren cages. Kids until the age of 8 may enter for free.

An interesting exposition of the species presented, placed within the context of its environment and prevailing architecture. An exhibit type experience which in contrast with other well known larger theme oriented attractions aimed at wider audiences, perhaps at times afford greater interaction with the visitor.

We stumbled upon this little museum, while walking around Riva. Our kids (9,5) loved it and we also found it interesting. Good (and scary) collection of live snakes and spiders. It's a good place to hide while raining/too windy, but not just...

Interesting display of live snakes, spiders and scorpions both non-poisonous and poisonous and also various mounted insects. My view is that it was not good value for money for the small size of the place and what there was to see - it cost €9....More
