Opportunity to overcome my snake phobia, but didn't work but great to see these deadly creatures close up. Expensive for what it is for entry fee for international tourist and the park is showing it's age with better facilities for both the visitor as well...More

The Snake Park is a below average exhibit of snakes, etc. The glass enclosed "tank-like" structures are unkempt, and the animals are OK, but not an enjoyable time. It is nice to see a large boa or cobra, but not enough to recommend the park.

if you like viewing "serpents" of all sizes, color, length...all you think about snakes, visit snake park. It is a bit scary, mostly because of the rattling and hissing, but it is safe because they are housed in glass...no worry!! Very exciting indeed.

For starters it's not a proper park... it's a small place with enclosures for reptiles and a dull aquarium. Not worth visiting in my opinion even if you were going to see the nearby national museum.

If you have a sincere interest in all creatures great and small (and creepy) then you will enjoy the snake exhibit for what it is - a display of a few snakes and so forth. We were particularly keen to be able to see some...More

There are separate tickets for the museum and the snake park or combined. We enjoyed the museum too so I would suggest you get a combination ticket. The prices are on their website which TripAdvisor will not let me post... More
