The exhibits are clear, many have English. I thought to price was higher than the value. It’s unique, interesting, and worth a visit.

Parts of this exhibit were interesting but it was not interactive, you needed to read a lot and there was no one available to ask questions. It cost our family of five 900 baht to enter and staying for 30 minutes was a stretch.

This entire museum is the private collection of an internationally-renowned mosquito-researching couple from Chiang Mai. Well worth the trip and 200 baht entrance fee. In addition to a large collection of pinned insects from around the world, there are fossils, teak carvings and beautiful messages/captions...More

Revisited the tour book. It is Baht 200 for adults and Baht 100 for kids. Don't think they will take credit cards.
