Albuquerque, New Mexico

If you are a fan of reptiles, or you would like to get over your fear of them, then the American International Rattlesnake Museum ( is a stop you cannot miss while on your travels! This museum holds the world’s largest collection of different species of rattlesnakes, and yes all of them are still alive. One fun thing about this museum is that they offer a rattlesnake scavenger hunt that makes learning more fun. Also, the guides here are always more than helpful when it comes to answering questions that you may have. Unlike a lot of zoos or other places where snakes may seem to just lay around, these snakes get a lot of good care to the point they are always curious about new visitors, which means you have the chance to come eye to eye with snakes of various kinds.
