Not worth a visit

This is just a common medical museum. I think it’s not a good choice for tourists, especially foreigners. The price 200B is expensive. It is called the museum of death in Chinese social media. I saw some curious Chinese young people. But the explanation is all thai, no Chinese, just a little English.
一个普通的医学博物馆,不太适合游客参观,尤其是外国人,200铢的门票还是挺贵的,不值得。网上叫它死亡博物馆,名字听起来很神秘,吸引了不少中国年轻人,但是实际上可看性不强。全是泰语,只有一点点英文。可以借英文的语音导览,但是语音解说内容也很少,机器也不好用。

Interesting museums and different to any museums I have ever visited before. The museums are rather vivid and fascinating but I don’t think they are suitable for children. Overall enthralling and worth visiting

I thought this would be such a creepy journey but the museum really gave you different experiences. I highly recommend this place to medical student or to any of you who interested in medical thingy. You should come at least once to this place.

Absolute waste of time.

Please learn from my experience and don't bother with this "museum". Granted it was free the day I went (even free for farangs...good job, Thailand).
Regardless, it was a total waste of time....so silly it was. Take the time to fully appreciate Wat Pho and Wat Arun.....explore a neighborhood like Bang Rak which few foreigners visit.....enjoy the pretty Teak houses of Suan Pakkad...relax in Lumphini and watch for a monitor lizard (I got a great photo of one)....don't waste your time at Siriraj...your time is too precious.

Visit to Siriraj museum

Very insightful and an eye opener. Worth the visit. The displays were not as gory as described. Only thing they removed the serial killer. Was looking forward to seeing that.

Not for the faint hearted

The museum boasts an array of bizarre and morbid collections — ranging from feti in jars with defects, to personal suicide effects and even coverage of the tsunami disaster of 2004.

While the museum itself has an air of macabre, one must journey in with an open mind. Surely, there is plenty that can be learned from the displays.

Lastly, exhibits are mainly in Thai and to fully immerse in the experience, an audio guide is a must — readily available at the first counter.

3 museum in one complex

We visited bimukstan history museum (ask for free headset), medical museum, anatomy museum and spent around 5 hours today. Very interesting subject & well displayed with english text, we enjoyed it very much.

MUST VISIT, As non-medical people, we learn a lot. Not to be missed For medical profession & student. I never see museum like this in other countries . Many cadavers to show human internal organs and the health illnesses. also many siamese twin baby cadavers.

Take the boat to thonbury for bimukstan museum or wanglang pier for medical museum. Both museums are nearby.

And check wanglang market on the pier.. We found nice thai food on the pier.

Well that was disturbing

This museum is pretty morbid and is definitely not for everyone, but if morbid is your thing...hey, jackpot. It took me a couple of hours to go through - without the audio guide and missing a couple of the museum wings because we were short on time. I recommend getting the audio tour unless you can read Thai; many exhibits have no or limited text in English.

When we visited in Dec 2019, the Si Quey exhibit had been removed (this is the supposed serial killer whose body was mummified and put on display). I'm not sure if this was temporary or permanent, although I know there has been a rising fuss in Thailand about displaying his remains, and the museum had removed the "cannibal" label from the exhibit a few months ago.

But there's still plenty to see - an ancient iron long, deformed fetuses in jars, a ginormous testicle affected by elephantiasis, bloodied clothes from a notorious murder, and tons of other body parts. There's an extensive and interesting section on the 2004 tsunami, complete with a grotesque display of mannequins retrieving a bloated corpse from the floodwaters.

Different and bizarre
Dec 2019
If you are looking for something different in Bangkok The Siriraj Medical Museum located on the grounds of Siriraj hospital is an interesting couple of hours, The museum is a training area for medical students but open to the public. Not for the squeemish as there are lots of displays of various body parts. To get there you have to travel by river boat from one of the many peirs on the Chao Phraya River 15baht on the orange line boat and get off at the Railway Station Pier or Thonburi Railway Station Pier (Thai: ท่ารถไฟ), with designated pier code N11 i

OMG - WHAT DID I JUST SEE!?

Well, it’s certainly one of the more unusual sites you’ll ever see. You can’t take photos but I’m not sure if you really do want to. This is graphic stuff - certainly not for the squeamish - but it’s one of those things you just have to “look” at.

It’s worth the visit.

Take the ferry to here and simply walk to the museum- it’s well signed post and very easy to find.
