Lovely grounds, interesting presentations and friendly staff. We spent several hours wondering around! Whether you like snakes or not, it is a nice place to visit. Children will definitely love it too.

We were easily able to get a taxi here from the far side of the river - the driver was familiar with this landmark. We arrived just before 10am on a Sunday morning and it was quiet and lovely. Admission was 200 baht for foreigners and 40 baht for locals. We had enough time to browse the many live snake... More

This is freaky - big big snakes but a good story as they nurture the snakes to produce anti-venom worldwide (I think...). Kids love it & it's culturally significant.

My daughter wanted to see this and it was actually very nice and some scary experience... Just make sure to verify the hours of their ''snake-show'' before you go so you don't miss it!

Excellent hang out place for only 200 baht. Splendid 2 hours' visual sensation. Not only you can watch and engage with live snakes, to have the opportunity to witness the bone and flesh itself is very valuable.

They allow the visitors to touch and a few of us had one wrapping around... More

Had gone to get oral cholera vaccine to the Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute and was told to wait for an hour as I had a meal a while back. To while away the time visited the Snake farm located in the premises. A very informative visit and the show was great.

Well worth a visit... Very informative. Make sure you see all the areas (we almost missed them). The have an outside, inside both ground floor and upstairs. Outside and ground floor is where the live snakes are located Upstairs is an informative museum, very interesting. Wish we could have seen the show :(
