  • Best museum I've ever visited. Entry fee is 200 Baht, audio Guide is for free. Every room is interactive in a unique way. No matter if you go in alone or in a group you can have fun. Theme is: what is Thai(ness) and how did it become like that? I came with no expectations and went out with an overwhelmed feeling. Staff is extremely nice, restrooms are perfectly clean. Extraordinary.
  • Out of our expectation, it was a fun and entertaining experience in a museum. As you can see from the pictures, there are not only exhibits of things in Thailand, but also games and activities that visitors can participate in to get a deeper understanding of the question - what makes Thailand 'Thai'? It's definitely worth your visit.
  • Love this museum so much. There are creative contents about Thai historical stuffs. The children enjoy playing toys and games together with learning new experiences. Moreover, they learn that Thai history is more interesting than only in their books. The museum provides them a chance to try and touch the real ones.
  • One of the best museums we’ve ever been to in any country! Showcases history in an interactive way in each room. Great for adults and kids alike. Everything is in both Thai and English.
  • The audio guide and the locker are free. The toilet is well maintained but has no paper towels. There is reasonable air-conditioning in most rooms. The somewhat short exposition tries to be inventive in depicting the Thai people and their everyday life, customs, and beliefs.
