All year long
The Serpentarium (snake house) is but one element of the famed Butantã Institute, situated in the Butantã district. The foundation of this centre was part of a larger project to promote biomedical sectors and involved three specialised museums (Biology, History, and Microbiology Museums) along with the Vital Brazil Hospital and a local library.
The Serpentarium is attached to the laboratory where vaccines, anti-venom serums and various other medications are produced. It has a large collection of reptiles housed in conditions close to their natural environment, which is is open to visitors.
