Even if you're creeped out by insects, this is an awesome place to see. This museum has an incredible amount of insanely large wasp/hornet and ant nests from around the region, but also a vast amount of individual insect and species displays. One of the...More

As I already have a lot of interest in insects and have a small collection of my own I was really excited to drag my boyfriend along here. We both thought it was spectacular. Never have I seen such a huge collection in one space,...More

Well worth the 200bt as the display covers beetles, butterflies/moths, mosquitos and beyond. Easy to follow guide with the life story of the founders of the museum. This would fit right into the likes of the British Natural History Museum.

You need to be seriously into bugs to get the value of the 200bt entry fee here. To be fair it's a very good private collection across two floors of a residential property, but it's a little repetitive and quite warm inside. Not a must...More

Who knew that insects could be so fascinating. But maybe that's because the curators of this collection hold such a sacred view of life. A true labour of love that is well worth a visit. Best part was that it was quiet.

There is no air conditioner. It's a lot hot. If you go upstairs, there are many things to see. There are so many similar insects. If you like insects and have time to spare, this is the place to go.

The museum mostly features the personal collections of Dr. Rampa Rattanarithikul and her husband. There is a wide variety of displayed insects, rocks, fossils, seashells, and more in a slightly dusty and cramped two-story display. The most interesting aspect of this museum, however is the...More

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