The theme of the museum is Thainess and what makes Thailand. Spread over three floors the exhibits help you gain an understanding of Thai history, the key influencers and how it's culture has developed. In the same area as the Wat Pho and Grand Palace,...More
For over 20 years we come to Thailand to work, to conferences, for vacation, to visit friends. And we have been saddened to see what we love disappear.
This expo called "What is Thainess" addresses that very issue.
First the details of the cultural identity...More
Firstly I think this place is a little bit “fancy” for a museum: beautiful, modern, with a coffee shop and a souvenir shop at 1st floor. But the more you discover this place, the more excited you are. You will know more about Thai history,...More
The museum is an alternative attraction to the Wat Pho and Grand Palace,but it gives a thought for Thai-Siam culture of "Thainess" - nation,king and politeness,with the building in teak style wood adding to the culture.
Compared with the other very busy attractions it is...More
My 7 year old son had so much fun learning about Thailand in the 'Decoding Thainess' theme. They has audio guide which is good for my little independent learner. Great interactive exhibition. Nice workers. Relaxing old building and big yard tucked in the busy street...More
This was one of the top 3 museums that we visited in South East Asia. On our second trip to Thailand ( travelled to Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar) this was a welcome learning experience about what is thainess. This is a very hands on interactive museum...More
This very nice old building hosts a surprisingly modern museum that focuses on the “Thainess” concept. What is Thai? What is not? There s of course no answer to this but the museum brings many information to solve the equation. Although nothing is discussed in...More
Hello! I am due to visit Bangkok for 3 days on my way towards Singapore at the beginning of June. I would be curious to know if the Museum of Siam will be reliably reopened by that time: does anyone has this information? My other question concerns the Dusit Park. Is it still interesting to go there while the Vimanmek Mansion is closed? And can one get there? Many thanks in advance!

Is this with one of the guides recommended in this forum? Is it 1000 per person or for a group? Going with a local certainly enhances the experience but I would only do it with someone who was recommended.

Children's Discovery Museum or Museum of Siam for kids? (2 Replies)
I am wondering which is more worth visiting with 9- and 11-year-olds - the newly renovated Children's Discovery Museum, or the Museum of Siam? The former seems interesting but I am not sure if it's more suitable for younger kids. We are also planning to visit the National Museum of Science during our trip. Appreciate any advice! Thanks!!

Pretty sure the Children's Discovery Museum is not open - check first. For a fun place to visit look at Kidzania, my kids loved it and the Rice Barge Tour which includes a khlong tour is really fun as well.
