Went in November 2018. Not sure how this place has won TA awards?!?!? Drivers may be confused as there is something like a Siam Insect World (can't remember the exact name). An address is helpful and knowing that it is near the Chiang Mai airport...More

Parts of this exhibit were interesting but it was not interactive, you needed to read a lot and there was no one available to ask questions. It cost our family of five 900 baht to enter and staying for 30 minutes was a stretch.

This entire museum is the private collection of an internationally-renowned mosquito-researching couple from Chiang Mai. Well worth the trip and 200 baht entrance fee. In addition to a large collection of pinned insects from around the world, there are fossils, teak carvings and beautiful messages/captions...More

Although not the biggest fan of insects, I am always eager to see weird and wonderful natural things. This museum certainly delivered. Upon entering it may seem a bit strange and expensive (200 baht), but you quickly realize it is totally worth it. Set up...More

An eclectic array of insect exhibits by a man who loves mosquitoes. You will understand that should you visit. Much better than the nearby Crocodile Museum.

Something for when you have seen most of the rest of Chiang Mai. Only 4 stars because they ask for double what the other (government) museums charge. Though perhaps there are good reasons, scholars generally being poor.

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