  • We visited this small museum since we had time to kill before our lunch reservation. Glad we came here. It's interesting to read about the architectural evolution of commercial and official buildings....  more

  • A fun lighthearted interactive museum full of information about what it means to be Thai. Admission is very reasonable and as we were over 60, it was free for us, even including the English audio...

  • Visited in 11 June 2022. The museum is housed in a big campus and plenty of food & drink options were available. We witness a music band performance. Museum Siam was established in 2008 to be a model for a modern learning centre. By presenting the story of Thais from past to present through the combination of media and a variety of technologies which is considered to help enhance the education of Thai people. Especially the visitors who are in their childhood and youth will have the opportunity to learn Thai History creatively. The Museum consists of 3 parts including a permanent exhibition, rotating exhibition and creative learning activities.
  • What is "Thai-ness" or to be Thai? This fun interactive museum explores that question and shares many experiences that create modern Thailand. Set in a large historical building, you can wander in and out of galleries on multiple floors. Most every gallery has interactive components from comparing Thai foods mounted in bowls on the wall, to sitting at school desks while a video teacher at the front of the classroom teaches Thai writing. A number of the exhibits were popular culture based from animated characters to street fashion. Entry fee and audio tour earphone collection is on the ground floor, exhibits are on floors 2 and 3. After your tour, wander the grounds around the museum, there is a nice cafe tucked in the back corner that serves coffee and drinks, is a great place to sit under the trees, and also contains some interesting artifacts and photos.
  • It's a great place to learn more about Thai history in a fun and educational way. Totally worth visiting. You even get a free audio guide. Recommended time about 2 hours to fully explore everything.
  • Small enough to enjoy without getting tired of walking, although the stairs can be quite a hassle. Nice collections, very light but still providing nice intro to Thai modern culture. The temporary exhibit about the lottery in Thailand is quite interesting with a complete information dated back in king Rama all the way to the recent history and how it impact society.
  • Terrific!!! And aimed at the young minds that like to explore push buttons and see the world in a different way. A modern museum that was designed to engage the senses. Also, being very conveniently right on top of MRT station Sanam Chai does help a great deal, entrance fees of 100THB per adult / person will get you in. The exhibit starts on the 3rd floor. Working its way down to the second and eventually the 1st (ground) floor. A must for families that have kids that like to touch, pull poke and explore!
