  • This place was a great little experience especially for our 3 year old but I enjoyed it too. There are cases and cases of different preserved insects to marvel at together with some information boards. Then you get a torch to hunt down the spiders in their tanks. You can walk amongst the butterflies in the butterfly garden. You can get up close and hold caterpillars, stick insects and leaf insects, turtles, iguanas and a scorpion if you dare! It was quiet when we visited on a Saturday morning and the staff were great and spoke quite reasonable English and spent lots of time talking about the insects and animals and answering some of our questions. A great 2 hours well spent and will go back again.
  • Very interesting place both for children and adults. The museum is very detailed and divided into different sections: butterflies, insects and spiders. The most interesting part is the one dedicated to alive animals, where the staff allows people to come in contact with weird animals and overcome the usual fear. The butterfly park is nice though not excellent.
  • Fantastic staff with good English, who are more than happy to take the time to show you each animal and exhibit individually, and explain any questions you have. Good range of bugs to look at and play with, plus some lizards and tortoises too!
  • Small zoo but well worth the 200thb entry. There is a good variety and collection of some really impressive insects! The staff is great and friendly and you can hold several of the different species here as well. I think kids especially would love this. After going to the horrible dump of a snake farm and the underwhelming orchard farm, this was a relief. Happy we stopped here!
  • Many type of insects both dead and alive for you to get close and personal. It is amazing to see all kind of sub-species that I never knew it existed out there in the wild. Staffs are very knowledgeable and helpful. It is a small zoo, though, so don't expected it to be a large museum type.
