Albuquerque is the largest city of the New Mexico state in the USA. With its historic sites and modern shopping malls, the city of Albuquerque seems to combine the old and the contemporary in an interesting blend. This city has a host of
attractions for visitors including The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History and the Albuquerque Biological Park. This city is perhaps best known on the international map for its Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. This annual event that takes place in the beginning of October is considered to be the largest of its kind in the world.
In the past, the Balloon Fiesta has attracted so many 'balloneers' to Albuquerque that it was necessary to limit the numbers of participants in the event. Among all the interesting sites that are available in this area, perhaps one of the most interesting and unusual museum locations is the American International Rattlesnake Museum that is located in Albuquerque.
The American International Rattlesnake Museum was initiated in 1990 and today provides an interesting learning experience for its visitors. This could be considered as an unusual type of museum, concentrating on the rattlesnake.
This museum explores the world of the rattlesnake and is suitable for all the family. It is surely surprising for many people to note that 34 different types of rattlesnakes may be found in this museum. Before entering the Museum, many of its visitors would probably not even believe that there are so many different varieties of rattlesnakes.
