    I visited the Serpentarium in July, I brought 2 of my grandchildren ages 8 and 6. All three of us enjoyed our visit. The displays are very nice and the assortment of snakes if fantastic. We especially enjoyed the alligators and were very happy to get so close to them. Take time to sit in on the snake lecture and then make sure you get to see the alligators feeding. We all learned a lot on our visit. Plan to stay at least 1 1/2 hours, you can stay as long as you want. There is a small snack bar and a very nice gift shop. We are visiting Edisto...Read More

    Enjoyable and educational vacation stop while on Edisto Island. The staff was friendly and did a good job explaining the benefits of reptiles for the eco-system. True to their location they spent a great deal of time sharing about snakes and alligators specific to South Carolina. I'm not a fan of snakes, but I do feel more informed now about the snakes I share a habitat.

    This was a real treat. We've forced the kids to see some pretty bad animal and natural history exhibits on our vacations but this was one they enjoyed. There are quite a few large venomous snakes and huge alligators on display. Definitely try to visit during the alligator feeding time, it's worth watching.
