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.

Something different to do, very interesting story of how the museum came about. Maybe not everyone's cup of tea but worth a visit if you are interested in insects.

This is a great 45-60 minutes out of your day. It's a two floor museum of a couple's insect, rock and other natural wonders collection. Recommended for midday when the heat is getting to you!

The museum was one of the most wonderful experiences in Chiang Mai. The hosts are reknown scientists in insect research who show their life's collection of the most amazing insects, but also rocks and gems and other wonders of nature to the public. You can...More

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