  • This place is great! The staff are friendly and we had a lovely lady show us all sorts of bugs and animals. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Excellent fun and engaging for the family. We paid thb 200 per adult and thb 150. The staff are friendly and they are very knowledgeable about the various insects. The highlight was much children hold various lizards, caterpillars and insects. Well worth a visit with children and there is a fantastic family Thai restaurant 150m along the road.
  • Don't forget to stop when you go to Botanical garden. Staff here are enjoy their work. Many thing about insect world that you can learn from here.
  • 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.
