Must see attraction
Jan 2020 • Family
When in Bangkok, visit this place. Snakes are interesting, but all info around them is even more. And be there when there is the snake handling show. It’s worth seeing. We were there on a holiday and there was no venom extraction shows that day so maybe next time in Bangkok I’ll see that.

Rare and Unique experience
Jan 2020
Attended the 2:30 pm catch show. Fascinating to watch the handlers "catch" the snake. So interesting and so highly skilled. The snakes are mesmerizing. King Cobras, massive python. I wanted to see this facility and support as it is run by the Red Cross and one of two snake farms in the world whose purpose is to milk the snakes for their venom and make anti-venom treatments. Highlight of course was to hold the python. This is definitely near the top of my must do list for Bangkok

Excellent Experience!
Feb 2020
This turned out to be one off the highlights of the day. We observed the staff extracting venom from several snakes. It was so interesting to watch. The Center has displays of many different snakes, both venomous and non-venomous from around the world.

Excellent experience (and we didn't even get to see a milking)
Feb 2020
We unfortunately missed the milking show date, which is supposed to be the main attraction, but even so, we would recommend this experience to anyone. The daily show is informative and entertaining. The animals are beautiful. The seriousness and at the same time folksiness of the presenter was appreciated.

Well done exhibit
Mar 2020
The snakes were in life like habitats, yet fairly easy to see. The snake handling show was informative and interesting. I will add that they taunted the cobras a bit to get them to hiss and feel that is not acceptable treatment. Other than that, a worthwhile trip.

Hard to find by walk but the show was excelent. Our 9and 11 years old girls love this place. Opportunity to take photo a big snake on your shoulders was the best!

Funny expirence - but must see the snakeshow
Jan 2020 • Family
We went there on a weekend, where they do not extract serum from the snakes.

The snake show was very good. I think that if it had only been the park, then it would have been a little boring.
The photo session where you can take a picture together with a snake is free

Really good for the kids

My son was really engaged with the snakes, there is a great selection of species and lots to look at. The snake milking was the highlight which happens at 11am.

Indoor and outdoor displays.
Feb 2020
The reptile displays are built to include camouflage to provide protection for snakes. This, at times, made tacking pictures problematic. The displays represent many areas of the world. History of reptiles, snakes in medicine and mythology as well as the physical attributes are included in static and interactive displays,

Good presentation and interesting visit
Dec 2019
I first visited the Snake Farm in the mid-1970s when it was located in a more rural environment and all that was offered was a demonstration of venom extraction. Now the exhibits indoors are well designed. I was shocked when one of the snakes behind the glass attacked repeatedly, but other than that scare, we enjoyed seeing the various species. The staff that organized the presentation did a very good job with the snake handling.
