Science Museum and Planetarium, Bangkok

3.1
#22 of 45 in Museums in Bangkok
Observatory Science Museum
A bit dated but still amusing, Science Museum and Planetarium features interactive displays, a robot technology room, life-like dinosaurs, a pirate ship, and large open areas ideal for kids in need of some exercise. Look behind the building for aircraft exhibits, and do not miss the visual perception display with lots of fun optical and sensory illusions. If you get hungry, the canteen sells delicious noodle soups. Very little signage is written in English, but the staff can explain anything you find confusing or unfamiliar.

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.
