Very educational and informational. Entry fee per person is 200 bahts. But its worthwhile. Afterall, its contributed to red cross for research on anti venom. Do not miss the daily performance. They will highlight various snakes with detailed explanations. Followed by photo taking session.

Your ticket allows you to see the venom milking in the morning, and then return in the afternoon to see the snake show. Both are worthwhile. There is also a snake museum.

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. Must go during show-times where they will showcase different venomous snakes and even the King Cobra! What a sight! Was educational and insightful for me.

We spent an afternoon here and learned so much about snakes in Thailand. It is a wonderful exhibition of snakes. The show was incredible. This is super worthy of a visit!

If in Bangkok, do not miss this one. I was here in 1992 and enjoyed it then. Coming back with 3 kids 8-14 years of age, it was still great. For all of us.

Hey there! I wish I could remember how much exactly it was, but it was no more than $5 USD. I just remember it was crazy cheap, and my daughter who was 3 at the time got in free.

Yes, you can go in and out as many times as you want during one day! But you need to show your ticket every time!

You must go to the show in the afternoon if you want to hold a snake and get a photo with it. The website has the times listed.
