Located within ORTO at Khatib, The Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum has reopened and is welcoming back visitors once again.
For those who aren’t familiar with the attraction, The Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum is more a mini-zoo than a typical museum. It is home to a huge number of the shelled, quadrupedal reptiles, including some which roam freely about the compound.
It is a kid-friendly attraction where little ones can get up-close to the turtles and tortoises.

A highlight of any visit is the chance to feed the animals. For a small fee of $2, visitors can pick up some feed, either vegetables or fish food pellets.
Feeding the tortoises is extremely enjoyable and there is something about watching them chomp down on the food that is completely satisfying.
