Great museum, interactive exhibits
Sep 2020 • Family
Very well presented and interesting exhibit on the concept of Thainess, interactive and fun displays, great for a family visit with teenagers who enjoyed the 1,5 hours visiting this museum, located right next to Wat Po and the Royal Palace. Not to be missed!

Free entrance on public holidays

Everything was great about this museum. A must if you are visiting Bangkok. All the lovely quirks of Thailand, presented in the very informative and interactive Thainess exhibition. BTW, it is an air-con space, self-guided tour in various languages and the staff is there to guide you. Could not expect more. Recommended after/before visiting Wat Pho. Bring change for the ice cold drinks from the (working-order) vending machines throughout the museum.

OLD THAINESS THROUGH MUSEUM SIAM
Jul 2019
The Museum Siam is the best place to learn about Thai life from past to present. Inside, there will be many exhibitions showing Thainess: permanent exhibition, temporary exhibition, and learning events and activities. The permanent exhibition now is presenting in the name “Decoding Thainess” to show the development of Thainess from past to present through the advanced technologies. You will be enjoyed our social context that has been changed with age. Also, there are a lot of interesting things about our legends and beliefs that will be shown in the real figures, such as Spirit Worship and Little Guardian Angel, through the exotic forms of presentation such as mixed media technology. It also has the exhibition in remembrance of King Rama IX.
My impressive things are all exhibitions about the old Thai. It’s just like I am throwing back to childhood; seeing the package of the old instant noodles that once existed, watching the very old advertising videos that were popular in the past, and enjoying the classroom of the past presenting in virtual classroom. In addition, I can participate in the living kitchen where I can learn about Thai food through motion graphics. It’s cool! I would love to say that it is a good place for those who want to recall your old days and study Thai life in the past.
Every zone is provided in the proper sections. Every room is air-conditioned and cool. Brochures and knowledge sheets are distributed when purchasing tickets.
You can visit the Museum Siam every Tuesday – Sunday, 10.00 am - 6.00 pm (closed on Monday and National holiday).
For the admission fee: Student (15 years up) is 50 baht, Thai citizen is 100 baht, and Foreigner is 100 baht.

Great Museum!

Very interesting museum to visit. It's highly convenient to travel by underground, getting off at Sanam Chai station, one of the most beautiful underground station in Bangkok.

Interactive museum
Jan 2020
Visited near end of day, with less visitors around. Interactive museum well-geared towards family / children. We did enjoy our times though - to break up the temple visits. Could offer more in-depth explanation of the exhibition, but overall it is great to wander around the exhibitions and gardens

Fantastic family museum
Jan 2020 • Family
This excellent museum was interactive, educational and very entertaining. We all loved the exhibit rooms and the well done (and free) audio tour. Our kids particularly liked the dress up photo booth at the end of the museum.

Totally worth a visit
Dec 2019
You may find yourself longing for a cultural experience that is not a temple! If so, then head to the Museum of Siam. This creative and thoughtful museum takes about 60-90 minutes, so is a reasonable addition to most schedules. There is not a huge amount of detail about the history of Thailand, but the exhibit on What is Thai-ness is fascinating! I thoroughly enjoyed each gallery and spent an extra 20 minutes in the terrific museum shop! It is also super easy to access as the entrance is right next to a subway stop.

Somewhat interesting
Jan 2020 • Couples
This is an interactive museum focusing on the Thai people and culture. A good place for kids. We went close to closing time and had 45 minutes to tour the museum which was actually just enough time to get a good viewing of the exhibits. With kids it would definitely take longer.
This museum is not free as noted in a popular travel guide. If time is tight this museum should be skipped but if you want to spend a couple of hours of less frenetic temple tours than this is a good place to visit.

Fantastic Museum
Jan 2020 • Solo
Wonderful museum with interesting exhibits that attempt to answer, "What is Thai-ness?" The galleries are arranged according to themes each with its own unique set-up that engages visitors to think about the different facets that make up Thai identity. Everything is highly interactive which makes going through the galleries really fun. I thoroughly enjoyed myself not realizing I had stayed for a couple of hours already. The museum also has a wonderful shop. This is so highly-recommended.
