The museum part is quite small but interesting, although you're really here to hold some creepy crawlies. We had a lovely guide show us round too so make sure you tip as it's cheap to get in.

Amazing collection of butterflies and other (big!) insects from the entire world, with the possibilities, for the bravest, to handle living big worms, scorpions, big insects and iguanas. An enthusiast owner and a friendly staff completed the nice experience. My 3 daughters were stunned.

If you’re in the Mae Rim area, it’s worth the 200 Baht entrance fee, 80 Baht for Thai citizens. The staff are knowledgeable and enjoy answering questions. There is a live butterfly area, and there are displays with live tarantulas, scorpions, lizards and a few...More

Lots of creepy crawlies here to keep one busy for a couple of hours, and lots of beautiful butterflies (which is why I went there). You can touch a lot of the insects, if you so desire. There are lots of huge spiders, crickets, stick...More
