Stumbled onto this place totally by accident during a recent visit to Prague. They have T's, scorpions, centipedes, and one true spider (a small black widow) It's located on the street leading to Charles Bridge on the city (not castle) side. They claim over 100 live animals - I counted 60-some enclosures. Pics show the fascade of the building, some representative set-ups for their terrestrials T's (they had bigger ones for larger specimens and arboreal set-ups where approriate) , their write up on the black widow, and a few of their T's. Cost was 120 Czech Crown - like $6.50 USD at the time of my visit.

I wouldnt go to Prague just to see it, but if you happen to be there, it's worth a gander

Oh, wow! How awesome!

Thanks for sharing pics! That must have been a nice surprise to find. :)

If I'm ever near there, I will have to check that out.

Very cool. Most museums I see only have the pinned up specimens.
