Children's Discovery Museum, Bangkok
(4/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
Get busy with the entertaining and educational activities at Children's Discovery Museum. The museum's hands-on approach to learning engages kids in multicolored, multi-story settings across eight different sections in three buildings. Exhibits include the human body, mechanics, and culture, but most little ones will rush to the bone-reassembling dinosaur detective area or the water play zone (swimwear required). The facilities provide showers and baby changing stations. Expect crowds over the weekend; plenty of eating options cluster nearby. Put Children's Discovery Museum into our Bangkok vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • FREE. Let's start with that. You just sign in and enjoy. There is a small water park / splash pad, huge play structure with staff supervision, dinosaur area with Dino heads which you can feed and bones in the sand to uncover, a dining area though you must bring your own food, and a 3 story indoor play space with science exhibits, dress up, and build your own city areas. Be sure to bring socks for the indoor activities. The indoor part has AC and the outdoor parts are well shaded. There is great access by public transit. We like to go on Saturday mornings while it is cooler. Then we head to the Chatuchak weekend market to grab fruit smoothies and some food. We then head into the neighbouring park, hire a mat for 20 baht, and sit and enjoy lunch together. Did I mention it was free?!
  • Like: free for both local and foreigners. Good for family. Kids love it. Dislike: no food offering, by JJ market is nearby
  • Great place for kids to play and learn. I gave it 4 stars because it is a nice place to go it still needs to develop it's activities a bit.
  • Good thing it was free. Girls AND boys must wear a bathing top in the water park (fairly foreign concept for typical kiwi) Great interlude after JJ Market but wouldn't make a special trip to visit.
  • A great place for a playdate, it's free and kids enjoy playing in the different areas
