Science Museum Museum
The National Science Museum is a science museum in Thailand. Located in Khlong Luang district, Pathum Thani province, it was officially opened in 2000 to celebrate Queen Sirikit's 60th birthday. The museum is operated under the Ministry of Science and Technology.

In addition to typical scientific exhibits, the museum's sixth floor features exhibits on traditional Thai technologies such as pottery, carving, wickerwork, and metallurgy. The museum's fourth floor examines how Thailand's geography has shaped the Thai people through the centuries.

As of 2006, the museum's first floor held a special exhibit in honor of the Thai king, Bhumibol Adulyadej, or Rama IX. The king celebrated his 60th year on the Thai throne in the summer of that year.

The museum is also known as Queen Sirikit the Great Science Museum; Sirikit is the wife of King Bhumibol. The museum opened with her royal support.

  • Awesome educational establishment situated in the outskirts of Krung Thep. Staff are friendly and helpful. So many interactive exhibits, some not working of course, but a nice place for kids and students to come and learn. The kids science show is awesome. Although in Thai the kids really had fun. Some of the information and videos are outdated and old or atleast could use a refresh.
  • Ideal place to bring kids learning science with many exhibition .
  • The natural history museum is well decorated with interesting exhibit. Recommended for visit.
  • A nice science museum for everyone.
  • Good place for children.
