Well worth a visit.....

If you have a few hours to kill, then I'd recommend this place.
We spent four and a bit hours on a Saturday morning, mooched round most of the stuff, had a very pleasant (and cheap) bowl of noodle soup and found the place very agreeable.
It's split into four buildings: astronomy, science, fish and the seas and 'the rest' Unfortunately, building 2, the science one, was closed on my visit.
Cons:
If you don't speak Thai, it might be a touch tricky, as most commentary and exhibits in only in Thai
Some of the gear is a little outdated and needs a bit of maintenance.
Pros:
Conveniently situated next to Ekkamai BT.
You can park outside the ticket booth, provided you get there early.
The entrance is a bargain basement ฿30 (kids ฿20) and no dual pricing.

Great experience I'll be back again. we only had 2 hours so we had to run through to see it all. put 4 to 5 hours off so you can see it all in good time. There are three buildings you can walk through. There are lots of things for little kids. put on warm clothes as it is cold inside.

Good Science Museum For Kids & Families
Feb 2020
The National Science Museum has a nice variety of exhibits inside of the 7-floor main building. Each floor has a theme of sorts, though the 1st floor varies more widely due to its size. Most of it is suitable for kids roughly 1st grade through about 6th, though some aspects of exhibits, such as the chemistry area, are going to be quite a bit over the younger ones heads. But there was enough to look at and touch even there to maintain our 7yr old daughter's attention. Lots of hard science; chemistry, physics, biology, earth sciences. But also areas more toward engineering; robotics, architecture, etc. They also have some areas of physical and cultural anthropology as well as archaeology. No double-pricing for foreigners, so that's a plus. Seniors (60+) and school-aged or younger kids are free, others just 100 baht. Some of the hands-on things didn't work but really just a few. We spent 5hrs there including a lunch break and our 7yr old was dialed-in the entire time. It's quite well done and is certainly a great deal for the price. For small added fees, you can enjoy a science show or the "4D" theater. It is quite a distance from Bangkok proper, so is not accessible by public transportation. There are 3 other museums on the grounds but I will address those in their own right.

Loved the Information Technology museum part (different building)
Dec 2019
This museum complex is really made up of either 3 or 4 separate main buildings and individual museums, and we just visited the Information Technology part, not all that far (or close) to the main building. It was cool. There were the usual drawbacks, something not working, design could be improved, etc., but on the whole my kids really loved it.

That theme has so much potential (information technology, what computers can do) that it's easy to see any version of a museum covering it as falling short. Our kids are downloading programs that can do things apps weren't doing a year or two ago, and a museum couldn't keep up. Still it was interesting. A robot display was nice for younger kids, my daughter loved driving, and they both liked a Lego theme display (kind of getting off theme just a little, maybe). A roller coaster ride simulation was nice, just a little on the intense side.

Loved the Artist Hall which celebrates the collection of valuable art and cultural pieces collected by the king. Its divided into 9 sections that covered all aspects of photography, literature, landscape, handicrafts and musical composition. It exhibits the biography and pieces of work by every national artist.
Loved the 6th floor presentation on Thai folk intellect.

A day full of knowledge in reasonable price
Sep 2018 • Family
My 7 and 4 years old enjoy the National Science Museum every time! Most of the exhibition and interaction were working, so the kids had so much fun leading and touching thing.

The 7-floor building has so much to offer even for a growth up with the price of 100bath (for both Thai and foreigner) while the children are free. This price also include the ticket to other 2 Museums (which we don’t have enough time to visit)

I would recommend this place for every family with children. I also see that there is a building on going for the Rama 9 Museum . I will sure visit this places again!

Long drive, but worth!!!
Nov 2017 • Solo
I have free time for this weekend to discover new places I never went before. 250bht ticket package for Thai/ 3 museums in one area (National Science Museum, Natural history museum and Information Technology museum)
I love temporary exhibition ‘Monster in the sea’ from now-31 Jan 2018, don’t miss!

Some exhibitions needs maintenance. A lot of Informations were old and broken. by the way, they’re still fun to play around.

Worth the Trip!
Mar 2017 • Family
This museum is three in one. They have the Science Museum, Natural History Museum, and the Information Technology Museum. It is an hour outside of Bangkok, so travel during non-commuting hours, but it is worth the drive. This is particularly great if you have children - there is so much to see and a lot of hands-on activities. While much is in Thai, almost everything is also in English.

Well-maintained and informative
Jul 2016 • Family
This museum is located in the Northeast of Bangkok approximately one hour's drive away.

We visited both the National Science Museum and Natural History Museum.

Both the museums were very well-maintained. Many of the displays were very interesting and interactive. There were explanations written in English, so it was very easy to understand. There were also staff around, who could communicate in basic English. They were very helpful and they were very keen to perform demonstrations.

It is a nice place to take children, as they can learn many things in the museums. You can spend half a day there easily.
