EcoVivarium is a Living Museum featuring live reptiles, amphibians, and arthropods. Our Animal Ambassadors are 98% rescue and 2% donated. We do not purchase our animals. We offer guided hands-on tours of our museum, allowing guests to touch and/or hold our Animal Ambassadors! EcoVivarium is home to over approx. 100 different species and 300 animals. We feature 30 to 40 ambassadors in the museum each day.

Join us as we Step Into Their World... and ignite a passion for learning about the world and the amazing ectothermic creatures that call it home!

Join us for a day of fun and exploration on Museum Day!

The Museum Day event will be held in our covered parking area located directly under our museum building. Start out with a stroll through Turtlemania then visit with some of our most popular Ambassador Animals from around the world. You'll meet bearded dragons, geckos, iguanas, lizards from around the world, giant monitor lizards, and snakes from around the world! Plus see frogs, toads, and arthropods! Be sure to bring your camera and capture the excitement as you have an opportunity to be hands-on with these amazing creatures!
