  • It was a fascinating visit with plenty of interactive exhibits. The building was a lovely old colonial building and the museum exhibits were in better condition than other Thai museums. Nice gift shop...  more »
  • When I have a friend or relative come to Bangkok, I would always recommend or if I am present included a stop to the Museum of Siam as it gives an overview of the beginnings of Thailand until present ...  more »
  • Went by the Museum Siam the other day, and found it closed currently for much-needed renovations work. At this stage, the Museum Siam is scheduled to reopen late-April 2017.  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.
  • 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!
  • Not such a good experience today - only a very small portion of the museum open due to renovations. I would have planned something else for the morning had I known.
