A visit to this museum might just change your attitude towards snakes!

Travels with Deb

I don’t like snakes. Never have, never will. So, you might wonder what I was doing standing in The American International Rattlesnake Museum in Albuquerque surrounded by dozens of slithering creatures of all sizes and colors. It was mainly curiosity that drove me. I had read about this place for a number of years (it recently was voted Best Museum in Albuquerque for 2023 by Albuquerque The Magazine) and the fact that there’s nothing else like it in the country were enough reasons to motivate my visit. And though I am not a fan of these reptiles, I am oddly fascinated by them – as long as they are behind glass enclosures!
