  • During this month, there's only one exhibition on the first floor. So i spent time there just less than half an hour. I expected to see more things. Hope it's better once everything's completely finished.
  • 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.
  • As of Aug 12, 2017 museum on partially open (like 1/5th) due to major renovation. Still worth popping in if nearby to see the building and about 3 exhibits. Small snacks available. Clean restroom
  • Quirky museum. Wish they'd just called it MuSiam. Worth a visit.

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.
