Chok Chai Museum

Chok Chai Museum is a rather bizarre setup which contains a museum and small menagerie belonging to the late farmer and self-proclaimed Thai cowboy Chok Chai. Located in Bangkok's Lam Luk district, it is out of the way for the majority of people. The theme of the small zoo is white, with all animals barring the black leopards being white or albino. 

Our visit in July 2020 revealed that Mali the tigress has now been moved to Chok Chai Farm, Pak Chong. The other animals remain. Details and welfare score on this page refer to our 2018 visit.

What we are doing to help

At this time we are raising awareness for the situation of the captive tigers in Thailand through education of the public and through a number of different petitions.
