When My Kid Requested To Go To ‘Siam Serpentarium’
I asked my kids “Where do you wanna go this weekend?” and they answered “We want to see the snakes again,mummy”. It seems they like them so much, anyways let’s go there.
Actually, I like the way this place organized, It is decorated with modern colorful colors. That’s why kids like it. So, I’am talking about Siam Serpentarium which is the interactive learning center. At first, I don’t think that there will be anything interesting in the snakes museum, but Siam Serpentarium it’s not like a normal musuem at all.
This time, I will be your guide visiting around Siam Serpentarium.
Siam Serpentarium has very creative design. They take every single detail about the snake as a gimmick, the knowledge that they present is not too theoretical as well, I like everything here because the kids can learn about the snake’s biology through their 5 senses, experience the wonders of snakes lives and this place is divided into zones which is easy for me to tell them the stories.
Let’s take a look of the first zone….. “Immersive Snake Museum”
In this zone, we will see the world’s through the snake’s vision, will venture through an interactive forest environment and learn the lowdown on serpents. An amazing array of fascinating displays will engross you in all the sensational details. There will be an expert giving you a lecture throughout the pathway; how they are born, hunt, survive, and reproduce which I do not know before.
There is a technology called “Mapping” which show us the moving snakes on the ground.
We are watching how snakes do hunting
This is a model of Rattlesnake ….. It’s simulates the shaking action so that the kids can imagine how they ring the bell on their tail.

He looks so curious.
Seeing how the snakes move, snake’s wiggle
And this is the time when we walked into the snake’s mount, we can feel the smooth texture when we step on. There will be an expert giving you the knowledge about the snake’s body beginning from head to toe.
The expert also explain, how can snakes eat a whole pig even it has small mouth.
The answer of this question is , snakes have 2 joints between their upper and lower jaws, therefore they can open their mouth wider than other animals that have only one joint.
My daughter is curious about the snake life.
Snake Planet zone
In this zone you can meet amazing snake species which come face to face with over 70 fascinating species of snake from every corner of the globe witness the biggest, longest, most exotic and the most exciting such as Anaconda, the rare Golden snakes. The snakes will be inside the glass case so that you can be sure about the safety.
