We came a little late so we only saw half of the snake show; nevertheless it was very interesting and exciting! You see many very active snakes and after the show everyone that wants to gets the opportunity to touch the snakes and to take a picture with them. The museum and all the enclosures are very interesting as well.... More

Fantastic. Scarily close to live cobras in the show arena. King cobra feeding. Great museum detailing the snakes, effects of venom, serum and importance of protection of these wonderful reptiles (not only for serum).

I must confess I have no real interest in snakes. This place was a stop on our tour. It was fascinating, but I could live forever without going to a snake farm!!! They're proud of what they do, which is good, but again, snakes don't do much for me.

Often overlooked this was a really cool experience. They do a great presentation on the snakes and all the animals are well cared for. At end can take a picture with burmese python. Afterwards there are nice grounds to walk around. Inexpensive and close to BTS/MRT silom.

Took the children to the snake farm. This was my 3rd time. They have a 4.3m King Cobra. Could not see this time as the did not take it out. This King Cobra is just an amazing snake to see first hand. They have other snakes mostly all from Thailand. This farm is the 2nd oldest in the world and... More

Make sure you go to the snake handling show, it is very much worth it. The exhibit is full of information and live snakes. If you love snakes then this is the place to go.

I would go here if you really didn't have anything else to do. You need to make sure that you come to see the venom extraction at 11am or the snake handling at 14.30pm or I would say don't bother. You can't really see the snakes properly and there is not a lot of information about the individual live snakes... More

After walking around in the museum, which is impressive if you are interested in snakes, there will be a small show outside. The hosts are nice and funny, and this is actually the nice part of visiting the farm.
