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

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