  • A place where there are very attractive. To discover each time it still has charm because there is a permanent exhibition and exhibition of sterile merge. There are always activities. Mother's journey is not very convenient, but it is also the place to go to learn, as Thailand.

  • We were disappointed to find the main museum was being renovated. They do have a small exhibit on a financial crisis, but I strongly suspect due to the renovations, the exhibit is hard to follow the p...  more »

  • The "Minds of Thai Inventors: Looking Back and Pondering" exhibition was quite interesting. The exhibits themselves held somewhat deep meanings. The café portion of this exhibition is also recommended. This exhibition is open until Aug 27, 2017.
  • What an awesome place. And FREE!!! Come learn about Thailand economics here: a similar crisis to the American house bubble of 2008, how it came to bear the name of a Thai soup, what the government did to get Thailand back on its feet, and what Thailand should learn from it. And all of that through AMAZING designs, really cool sculptures and insightful information boards. Very nice staff, too.
  • Quirky museum. Wish they'd just called it MuSiam. Worth a visit.
  • It is one of the places to visit when you visit bangkok. Currently the place is under renovation, so kindly confirm before visiting the same.
  • Museum is closed for renovation. Surprised to see so many 5-star ratings from people who didn't actually see it. I give it 1 star because, while it's fine to close for renovation, the closing should be made clear. Unfortunately, that is not obvious from the website. The website of all places should have the updated time of operation. We took a taxi all the way down for the museum only to find it was closed and got gouged trying to get a taxi back. Good grief!

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
