Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was an interesting venue that we are able to compare to similar ones we've visited in different countries. The exhibits are not very well maintained, but it's clear that a lot of thought went into designing them originally.

I liked that there were a lot of staff around, some of them offering up critters to handle. There were school groups there, making it difficult to get around, but I was pleased to see the young people being exposed to the beautiful invertebrates.

The iguana collection seemed a bit out of place, but there were some beauties in that group, too.

If you’re in Chiang Mai take the time to travel just out of the city to visit this zoo/museum. It is amazing. Well worth visiting. Amazing displays of bugs from all over the world. Museum rooms filled with displays. And also a live section of spiders, butterfly’s, bugs, lizards, turtles, scorpions and more! Staff friendly and give information about the animals. Cheap entry. Lovely cafe to eat lunch after.

Amazing place. Staff really Nice and helpful. Really interesting. If you want to hold a spider or scorpion, this is the place. The animals should really have more space though😊

Large and entertaining displays of live an mounted reptiles, insects and arachnids. Better than the Orchid and Butterfly Farm.

So cool to see all the local bugs up close and lizards! Kids could spend hours, we spent 15 minutes after the Tigers and lots of other places nearby, definitely worth the stop & bhats! 😃 Everyone working there is so knowledgeable & friendly too.

A really interesting and interactive activity! The rooms and displays with 1000s of insects was extraordinary. The insect breeding area and butterfly garden were well done. My teens spent almost two hours exploring.

What a fantastic place! All the mounted insects are fabulous and the tropical butterflies and moths are gorgeous. The live displays really surpassed all hopes, as we have been to the excellent Bug Zoo in Victoria BC Canada. My 6 yr.old was keen to hold a tarantula and he got his wish!! The staff were entomology students at the university, which floored us. They got us playing with the scorpions and everything. Other live bugs were super cool and unique, and the live lizards were great. I'm going to have to go back and show them that the Madagascar hissing cockroaches are also tame. Not all the critters are extreme - they also have a large and lovely butterfly garden you can walk around in.

Yes. It is a tourist attraction. But, it was very interesting and educational. I was apprehensive at first, but once I was inside, I found it fascinating. Hands-on, lots of educational pieces, and plenty of displays. We spent a good hour going through the place. Nice side trip if you are in the area.
