  • Go and have a look, collection of Thai Asian dolls, and a shop that sell genuine Thai hand made dolls, some are pretty beautiful . Now don't cross the city for it ... it could be a huge investment in ...  more »
  • So many beautiful dolls ever and I have not seen anywhere else, except this Museum! Presented both Thai and foreign dolls in national costume, and they're all handmade! Many dolls depicted in various stages of Thai life, whom here only. Here comes the monk, a number of peasant labors in the field, and that's the whole Thai village. The Museum has a shop where if you want, you can buy something for yourself or as a gift.

  • The Museum / the factory is hard to find. Best with tuk tuk. I've added directions in Thai. Anyway, worth a visit and shopping. Thai dolls and dolls from around the world throng in a confined space. To an old lady who is somewhat difficult. No matter. Who wants to visit and buy, is right in here. Free, characters cost sightseeing of course more than industrial plastic junk.
