Was good to see so many snakes, but was great they were quiet a distance! The handler nearly got bitten, which was amusing! They also showed you Getting the poison from their fangs!

We were lucky to see various snakes close up, also lucky to see the venom collection. We have visited ab.out 10 years ago, we could see that there has been many improvements made.

This was a brilliantly done museum with so many different snakes. We went to see the milking of the venom of different snakes at 11am. The exhibition then upstairs is really well done, interactive and informative without being boring. Really enjoyed our time there.

Missed the 11am venom extracting event but was there for the 2.30pm snake handling show. Those handlers did an amazing job dealing with the snakes as well as providing a commentary. Unfortunately just as the show started, my batteries gave out and I had no spare ones. But I did take some photos of some of my favourite snakes beforehand... More

I visited this place today, and walked around the outdoor and indoor areas, seeing snakes in decent sized enclosures. The show (2.30pm outside) was very informative and entertaining. I am pleased to say that the handlers treated the snakes with respect and gentle persuasion, as opposed to cruelty like so many other attractions in Thailand. Even when bitten by a... More

200baht for entry. Don't miss out on the 2.30pm Snake Handling show. Interesting to see a showcase of different snakes explained by the guide in both thai and english. There's free photo taking opportunity with a huge snake hanged around your neck. The show was the highlight as the farm was relatively small. Walkable from Sala Daeng BTS.

Make sure you go on a weekday and at 11am you'll get to see them milking venom from some of the most deadly snakes on Earth. Unfortunately, after you've watched that, seen some snakes being fed, you then have to wait till 2:30pm for the snake show. But it's worth it. Very good performance by the animals and handlers. I...

We aimed at the 11am venom extracting and arrived shortly before it. For our surprise there was a demonstration still goung on, we managed to have a picture taken with the python. The venom extracting was very interesting - since I had already known the method it did not bother me that the demonstrator's English could not really be heard.... More
