  • The museum is now closed, though there were signs saying it was during opening hours. No one there was willing to explain to us. 
  • Completely closed for renovation. He is not understood since when and until when. Either you report. A person of security you displayed a poster to the get that says that is closed. I guess that until further notice.

  • As we were there on January, 5th 2017, the museum was closed for renovation. I could not find any information for how long, neither were workers there understanding English.

  • Didn't actually go inside but don'twant to mark it down. The reason is because it's closed for renovation until February 2017. Many people were disappointed like me, so I provide the review to inform people, as the information not clear in other sources
  • One of my most beloved place! The museum that summarize the Thainess pretty well. But it is getting old and having a big renovation.
  • Great museum about Thai culture and history. It's separated into a few different sections throughout the building and includes mixed media - for example an immersive video at the beginning - so if you wanted to bring your kids they wouldn't be bored. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English, and pointed out the route to follow through the museum. At the exit is a cafe which is nice, but standard museum-cafe prices - higher than somewhere down the street.
  • Under renovate. Plan to open in april 2017. However, there is a small exhibition called Burmese Close-up, where u can learn more about our neighbourhood.
  • Great place to learn about 'siamese'
