This facility, opened in 1923, serves an important function: collecting venom from Thailand's many deadly snakes to prepare antivenom to save lives. But they put on a wonderful daily show at 11 displaying the beautiful creatures before they are milked.

Good for an afternoon visit. Wide species of snakes. The walk around the snake farm or garden is a real pleasure.

Each year on my birthday, I like to treat myself to something a little different. This year, I took a trip here to see the snake show. With a variety of snakes and a very enthusiastic handler, it proved to be a very worthwhile trip.

For a mere 200 baht (two beers) you can see an excellent snake farm run by the Red Cross. What I liked most was that all or close to all snakes were indigenous to Thailand and I think it achieves its goal of awareness about snakes, antivenom and how to treat snake bites. The exhibits upstairs are in english and... More

Went with our daughter and really enjoyed the educational museum and chance to pose with a python! The building is a historic one and worth a visit on its own.

The snake farm is fun and interesting, it isn't so big but it's worth the 200baht. You can see a show two times a day and something about venom extracting that we missed. It's a great place!

The Institute was formed in 1929 in order to inform the public about venomous snakes and insects of Thailand. Over the years it has become a research and development center to create and dispense anti-venom serums. The Institute has greatly advanced the knowledge about neurotoxin and decoagulants within the venomous snake populations in Thailand. In addition to the many cobras... More

We went to the snake farm this morning and enjoyed several hours looking around this educational facility. We enjoyed watching the milking of the snakes at 11 am. Not easy to find but worth the trip.

Wow, what a great way to spend a Saturday morning if you are an animal lover. For an admission fee of just 200 Baht (~$6 USD) at the Snake Farm at Queen Saovabha Memorial, one gets admission to 10-15 outdoor snake exhibits, about twice that many animals inside the air conditioned, very well done serpentarium/museum, a venom milking show if...
