Please don't go and support this animal torture. Many are in small tanks with NOTHING else in there to play with. Empty glass boxes. Really sad how they keep the animals there. Probably just so they can claim to have the biggest collection in the...More

No way for animals to be kept. It really is a museum where the turtles are kept in small glass cases with nothing in them... or in tiny concrete enclosures with nothing in them. Don't pay for this and support this horrible way of keeping...More

Small place and kind of run down, but so many turtles. You can feed them too and they move fast once they see food! Our son loved it!

Definately, NOT, it is a very small building with narrow walkways with glass tanks on either side. Would not recommend this place unless you wish to be distressed at the poor state these turtles have to live in, very cruel
