The Siam Serpentarium

Snakes, some of us get excited and some of us are scared to death when they think about these elegant reptiles. Setup by the Siam Park Recreation Company, the Siam Serpentarium is another center for learning the fun way, today called "edutainment". It showcases dozends of snakes in all sizes and colors from all over Thailand and the entire world. You will go through the exhibition in small guided tours. Before getting to the real snakes you will learn about their life, their skin, how they move, how they reproduce and much more. Do you know why a rattle snake can make this characteristic sound? No? Well, you will find out in the Siam Serpentarium!

Even if Geology does not make you excited you should still come and see this great museum on 600 square meters! Geology is not only dust and rocks, this museum will tell you about Fossils, how petrol and Aspirin is made and how Tsunamis start. A nice little exhibit will take you back to the times of Dinosaurs and how we get to know them today.

There is so much to see... Planes, Double Decker Buses, ancient motorbikes, amphibious vehicles half car halb boat, old style Taxis from the UK and USA, French cult vehicle Citroen 2CV, penny-farthing bicycles and even a well preserved Delorean we all know from the Back-to-the-Future movies. And if you like it one size bigger you can always go and check out the Steam-Railway Engines located just a stonethrow away from the museum itself. As space at the museum is limited, these engines are located outside to the left on their own yard.
