The Bangkok Snake FarmThe Bangkok Snake Farm is also called the Queen Saolvabha Memorial Institute, or The Snake Farm at the Thai Red Cross Society.
The distinction is important. This place does not feature tourist oriented “freak shows” with chicken-eating Pythons and so forth (one can see these elsewhere).
It maintains a “zoo” of snakes for research purposes and does public education programs.
Visitors may watch a 20 minute slide presentation at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. It provides visitors a quick overview of Thailand’s poisonous snakes and charts how the Snake Farm produces anti-venom.
At 10:30 PM and 2:30 PM on weekdays, and at 10:30 PM on public holidays, there is a “show” in which handlers…handle the snakes and demonstrate venom “milking.”
Visitors may walk through a snake museum and observe snakes in natural habitats, which means the snakes are usually sleeping.
Among the snakes which reside at the Snake Farm are cobras, king cobras, banded kraits, Russell’s vipers, pit vipers, and sea snakes. There are also pythons living at the farm and visitors can hold them.
The Snake Farm is open on weekdays from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, and on public holidays from 8:30 AM to 12:00 noon. It is located at the corner of Rama IV Road and Henry Durant Road west of the Chulalongkorn Hospital.
