  • We visited this small museum since we had time to kill before our lunch reservation. Glad we came here. It's interesting to read about the architectural evolution of commercial and official buildings....  more

  • Visited in 11 June 2022. The museum is housed in a big campus and plenty of food & drink options were available. We witness a music band performance. Museum Siam was established in 2008 to be a model for a modern learning centre. By presenting the story of Thais from past to present through the combination of media and a variety of technologies which is considered to help enhance the education of Thai people. Especially the visitors who are in their childhood and youth will have the opportunity to learn Thai History creatively. The Museum consists of 3 parts including a permanent exhibition, rotating exhibition and creative learning activities.
  • What is "Thai-ness" or to be Thai? This fun interactive museum explores that question and shares many experiences that create modern Thailand. Set in a large historical building, you can wander in and out of galleries on multiple floors. Most every gallery has interactive components from comparing Thai foods mounted in bowls on the wall, to sitting at school desks while a video teacher at the front of the classroom teaches Thai writing. A number of the exhibits were popular culture based from animated characters to street fashion. Entry fee and audio tour earphone collection is on the ground floor, exhibits are on floors 2 and 3. After your tour, wander the grounds around the museum, there is a nice cafe tucked in the back corner that serves coffee and drinks, is a great place to sit under the trees, and also contains some interesting artifacts and photos.
