  • Very well presented museum in a beautiful building but it's level is mainly for children, which is great if you happen to be a child. I would have preferred a little bit more historical depth. There are also many gaps in the history presented. That may be to do with legal limits to what they can legally say. Glad i went though.
  • We visited this museum with two Thai kids. This museum offers some interactive activities that pleased the kids a lot. We all learnt more about Thailand in a funny way. The souvenir shop downstairs sells some interesting things that were worth to buy also. A must visit when your are in Bangkok with your kid(s).

We learnt more about Thailand here in the fun way. Souvenir shop downstairs sold some interesting things that were worth to buy also. Highly recommended.
  • Nice place to hang out with family. Very interacted museum exhibit about Thai history. If you want to know more about Thai then this is the place I would highly recommend.
  • Museum Siam is a discovery museum that is located at Sanamchai road inBangkok, Thailand. The museum was established in 2007 in the former building of the Ministry of Commerce.[1]It was created to teach the national identity and history of the people of Thailand, and their relationships with neighboring cultures. The motto of the museum is “Play + Learn = เพลิน” (which means 'joyously' in Thai); through a series of interactive exhibits, the museum shows the development of Thailand from the past to present.
