    Rattlesnake Museum & Gift Shop

    by MarkJochim Updated Apr 1, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    (Astrid Nathan 5/29/93)

    The world famous American International Rattlesnake Museum is located in Albuquerque's Old Town. The gift shop is free (if you don't buy anything) and has a nice range of reptile-related souvenirs - from kid-oriented to tacky to scientific. You need to pay to enter the museum portion, but it is definitely worth it!

    OPEN: weekdays noon-6; Sat. 10-6; Sun. 1-5
    ADMISSION: $2.50

    Sculpture Garden at ABQ Museum (M. Jochim 5/29/93)

    This nice museum just to the north-east of Old Town has the largest collection of Spanish colonial artifacts in the United States. There are also many displays showing Albuquerque's birth and development. A sculpture garden outside has 45 works by some of the best Southwestern artists of the 20th century.

    OPEN: 9-5 Tuesday-Sunday
    ADMISSION: $2.00

    The National Atomic Museum

    by 10eke Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are interested in 'atomic' history, this is the place to go. Both military and civilian use of atomic power and technology is on display. The picture is of a replica of the 'Fat Man' atomic bomb as used against Japan at the end of World War II. Other exhibits show actual B29 and a B52 bombers, and are about the Manhattan Project, the Cold War and new : Russian Bomb development!

    Albuquerque Museum of Art and History is a large well maintained museum. It nice enough but not my favorite museum in Albuquerque.
    Could not take any photos inside the museum. The exhibit I wish I had taken a picture of was the one about the Spanish Conquistadors.

    The Albuquerque History Museum is one of the most informative sources for local info that I know of. The Atomic Museum is a blast, as well.

    Hope You Make It Past These Guys

    Just two blocks northeast of Old Town are the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and the Explora Science Center and Children's Museum.

    Visted an Atom Bomb museum at the local military base. The picture shows a copy of one of the a-bombs thrown over Japan in WW2.

    New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science is great. One of the best things I visited in Albuquerque.
    Liked the full scale dinosaur models the best.
