It was a fascinating visit with plenty of interactive exhibits. The building was a lovely old colonial building and the museum exhibits were in better condition than other Thai museums. Nice gift shop too

As we were there on January, 5th 2017, the museum was closed for renovation. I could not find any information for how long, neither were workers there understanding English.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn

Unfortunately I haven´t seen anyone to sell in Bangkok. Probably is dificult to find handmade puppets. Maybe you can try in ToyRus, the famous toy´s department store from England. There are in Bangkok too.
