  • Good, quick stop with kids. Nice air-conditioned break from the temples. This museum isn’t “for” kids but they had quite a few rooms/displays that my 8 y/o and 11 y/o enjoyed. The staff was very frien...  more »

  • It's a well organized museum. The themed exhibits are interesting and thought provoking. They combine cultural, political, and historical aspects of Thai national identity. I've only visited once, but I hear that they change up the exhibits every few months or so giving the museum additional intrigue for multiple visits.
  • A modern and contemporary interactive museum to learn other aspects of the Thai culture at the old style beautiful architecture. The place was previously the site of Ministry of Commerce before it is relocated to the suburb and later this place was turned into a museum. Soon there will be subway station emerging right in front of the museum so later it will be much easier to get here and avoid all the parking headaches around the vicinity.
  • Set up really lovely with lots of details, old objects, and quite inspiring definitions of "Thainess". All obvious but also many true but more hidden typically Thai style are presented. Unfortunately the sad parts of the current and especially the last 100 years in history are again not pointed out as always. Would have been a great opportunity to finally face reality.
  • Extremely entertaining. I learned more about Thai people during my 2-hour visit than during 4 days of guided tours in Bangkok and around. My 5 y.o. daughter also loved it
  • The new exhibition "Decoding THAINESS" is interesting and very fun to look around. The building is beautiful and a close walk from Wat Pho. Totally worth checking out.
