Interesting trip

Nice little tour around the facility. Will take an hour or so. Lots of good information and facts about snakes. Plenty of different snakes to see too.

Enjoyed the snake handling demonstration very much. Large, many poisonous snakes are displayed and described by handlers who show the audience the snakes up close and with accompanying narration. Snakes brought our for demonstration included cobras, vipers, krait, and the grand finale python. Guests are able to put the python over the shoulders and take their own photos. The institute...

The indoor section basically has various venomous and non-venomous snakes on display in their glass enclosures. King Cobras to Pythons. Probably about 20 or so. The fun part is the "show" they put on. I believe there is a morning and an afternoon show. The fun part is how open everything is. That is, the snake handlers just put the... More

really small place but you could spend hours in the museum if you wanted to learn a lot. the snake show was very well done and at the end we got to take our photo with a large albino python. sadly the milking demonstration is not done on the weekend, which is when we visited, so go during the week!...

The snake farm was great! Lots to see outdoors and in a lovely setting too. There's also a really informative and interesting indoor museum (nice and cool if it's a hot day too). We made sure we were there for 11am in order to watch the venom being extracted from the snakes. The three men conducting the demonstration were excellent... More

A great deal smaller than the advertising would suggest, with only about six snakes being exhibited. Expensive admission in comparison to other attractions, and for what you get, but then if you think of it as a contribution toward further research and treatment programs, it may lead to less of a bite.

On our first day off the plane we decided to do something near the hotel and check out the snake farm for the snake handling show. So far it's been our favorite part of the trip. We learned so much about snakes in the museum, and the show was so exciting! It's amazing how they are able to handle these... More

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
