Explore Kanchanaburi’s harrowing past on 2-day, joint or private guided tour to Hellfire Pass and the Death Railway. Visit the region’s most important World War II sites: walk among the War Cemetery’s allied graves, then learn their stories at the Thailand-Burma Railway Center and the famous bridge across the River Kwai. Board a riverboat for Hellfire Pass, where POWs died in miserable conditions, then return to Thailand’s vivid, thriving present with an evening traditional dance presentation and a visit to a rural Mon tribal village.

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.

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.

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.

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
