This place is, "Amazing". I would definitely recommend it for people who are willing to learn (and touch) insects, arachnids, and lizards. My son (10) loved touching stick bugs, caterpillars, butterflies (if you are lucky, they will land on you, though not usually), lizards, and 2.5 inch scorpions. I promise you, all of these are completely safe to touch.for the... More

Place is average. We did not spend much time here...can see bugs in so many places...spend your time elsewhere. Staff was very nice.

Cheap and simple fun if you are in the area. Staff were very helpful and it was relatively cheap. Kids got to hold insects and lizards and the butterflies amazed my little one.

We booked a driver to fill a day in Chiang Mai as we wanted to get out of town for a while. We decided to go to the Siam Insect Museum on our excursion because we were expecting a butterfly garden. To be honest, we were a bit disappointed as it was more about the insects, spiders and scorpions rather... More

I've been here three times with my toddler and we both like it very much. They have a butterfly garden which is pretty and relaxing. There are a bunch of reptiles that you can hold, as well as leaf and stick insects, scorpions, many large spiders, beetles, praying mantis and more. There is always a staff member who can show...

We are not particularly insect enthusiasts. But a visit to the insect zoo turned out to be surprisingly interesting and educational. We spent a good enthralling hour in this place. One of the staff, or she could be a post grad student, was kind to show us how to spot some shy but huge spiders with a torch. Worth a... More

Bring you kids to this place as it was very interesting. It had live spiders from various places in the world which were creepy but very good to see. The butterfly part was my favourite along with the lovely lady who brought out different critters for my husband and daughter to hold. Good value for money at 300 baht.

This place is a wee gem! Spent over an hour looking at the displays and the live insects. Staff were amazing and very informative. Saw spiders, iguanas butterflies and scorpions to name a few. If bugs are your thing then put this in your Chiang Mai itinerary!

Do you want to visit interactive insect zoo? Or scared of huge living spiders? That's a place worth visiting then. Staff is extremely friendly, entrance fee is 200 baht. Kids will like it as well as girlfriends.
