  • It is obvious that this place has seen better days. Still the people who work there seem to be trying their best to make the most of what they still have. For the price I was quite impressed with what was on display. Definitely worth a visit.
  • The kids enjoyed the live snake show which was free and open to the public. The environment is very neat and well maintained. They need to employ more staff to guide visitors around as the place become congested and most people were just roaming around. Overall it was good experience.
