About Ecovivarium

HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE

EcoVivarium is about learning through hands-on experiences with our trained rescued and donated Ambassador reptiles, amphibians, and arthropods. The animals are rotated through the main floor museum, so each visit offers new experiences and encounters.

Your tour guide will introduce you to our Animal Ambassadors and offer hands-on encounters as they introduce you to their individual stories of how they came to call EcoVivarium home. You’ll learn about the different species, their connections to various cultures and history, threats to their existence, and how we can all positively impact the world by changing the simple choices we make every day.

Visitors of all ages will enjoy meeting, touching, and perhaps even holding – common, rare, and critically endangered species worldwide.
