Opened on May 5, 1990, the American International Rattlesnake Museum fondly calls its founding date as ?Snako de Mayo?. It receives 50,000 visitors every year and the museum has been cited in over twenty books as well as appearing in various TV programs including those hosted by the Discovery and Disney channels.

Currently serving as home to thirty-four rattlesnake species, the museum boasts of snake skeletons and various pop culture snake-related artefacts as well as live displays of albino snakes and a Gila monster. Interesting displays in the museum include 1910 skull-shaped opium jar that features a viper woven through the skull?s eye sockets as well as an original John J. Audubon watercolour illustration of birds attacking a rattlesnake.

The museum is members of the Albuquerque Convention & Visitors Bureau as well as the Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce.
