The live shows are at 11am and 2.30pm. Unfortunately we arrived at 11.25am so we missed out on that but we were able to enjoy the rest of the place. There is a large variety of different snakes (mostly Thai snakes) and also some interesting exhibits in the museum.

It was our last full day in Bangkok and we were trying to decide what to do as one of our final acts in Thailand. Since we had seen many many temples during our time in Thailand we had become a bit Templed out. We looked through a guide book and the Snake Farm was listed as an attraction. We... More

We went to visit the Snake Farm with our 2 children (11 & 12) and they both loved the experience. We first went in the morning to watch the "milking" and feeding and then came back for the snake handling, which includes being able to have a rather large python draped around your shoulders. The entrance fee is merely 200... More

Hidden gem! We particularly like the snake museum inside (2nd floor), both informative and fun. Great for children! Loved the section showing how snake ties into different beliefs/culture. Considering the ticket's only 200Baht and all proceeding goes to farm maintenance and vaccine-making by the Thai Red Cross, the place is well worth a visit!

Seeing the milking is rustic and scary. They may be behind glass but watching the handlers try to catch cobras on the shiny floor is an eye opener. Great for all ages. We did not do the 2pm show only the 11 inside.

Go from 11:30 for the snake milking until 2:30-3:00pm for the snake show totally worth the 200B/person! :D

You might read some bad reviews about this place, as I did, but dont be detered as it was well worth the 200tbh AUD8.00 per person. The snakes are out and about and in interesting enclosures outside. There are more snakes and interesting information also inside the exhibition building. I only wish we would have know that the snakes were... More

It's wonderful that the money goes to The Red Cross because it's pretty pricey for what you get. The exhibits are small and most snakes are hidden under rocks out of view. Snake milking show is at 1030, and snake show is at 230pm. Good selection of snakes in the show,commentary is in Thai and English, and there's a free... More
