  • the snake farm is not huge but the snakes are treated here well, including during the show with children. Personally, I for example refused to ride an elephant in Thailand because these poor animals would be mistreated. Snake charmers often mistreat their animals. I've seen lots of animals abused in Thailand. This is absolutely not the case here. The show from 14:30 is fine (beware the schedule is not the same during local school holidays) in thai and English. Tip: you installed 10 minutes early in the 1st row of the outdoor auditorium and accept the proposal to go on stage (if you're not afraid of snakes).

  • At said hospital because it was time to do something on the subway from Sukhumvit station at SAM YAN station, walk about 450 meters, or Institute of breeds and exhibits various snakes. Is the moving of reptile and nocturnal but unfortunately there are no snakes. ... Lift that reared its head is something that huge King Cobra-like, even hiding in the shadows, not the shape of tRNA is found threat posed. However, 11:00 30-minute j as the staff among the three sampling live show from the King Cobra venom, I was was surprised now, while King Cobra's size (about 2 meters). If used in manufacturing also was bitten by poisonous snakes, the admission fee is 300 baht and the higher serum (antidote) and cheap it is. You're going to play Tanya happon and is does not matter at all, but we recommend to take the subway than using the BTS Sukhumvit visit. SAM YAN station can be reached on foot. This is a new discovery.

  • The show / lecturer in both English and Thai. Very knowledge about the each category of venom and non venom snake. And how to deal with it. The show is daily at 11 am. Till 11.30 am Recommend place to visit. And safe for a kid & toddler also.
  • Excellent venue and my kids loved it. Make sure you come for the show. Venom extraction would also be interesting but only happens on weekdays. Loses 1 star for dual pricing. Thais pay considerably less - Adult 50 baht, foreigner 200 baht!
  • Amazing day out for family. First class Edutainment. The snake handling show is informative and ends off with a chance to hold a 🐍! Museum is also well curated. And, near an MRT station. Not much more to ask for.
  • The snake show is really excellent. You are literally metres from some of the most poisonous snakes in the world. The other exhibitions on site are all really well done. It was one of my highlights in Bangkok
  • Great place to get to know snakes. Theres exhibition of snakes and show to learn more about snakes. Great experience overall. 👍👍
