For students of anatomy anatomy and the curious
Feb 2020
Beyond anatomy students and those of a morbid curiosity about the human body (me), I cannot see why any Bangkok tourist would want to spend limited vacation time here. It is tricky to find, but I just asked a friendly guard. I’d recommend finding an entrance to the University on Thanon Henri Durant and asking the guard. For those still reading these comments, it is interesting to see real bodies (deceased Japanese) that have been skinned, preserved, posed and in some cases sliced and diced. Not a lot of English signage. There was a real brain that had suffered a sub-arachnoid bleed, an affliction I have experienced, so interest there. It seems a little dated, and I imagine there are numerous other sources of anatomical information available. Not really a criticism, but this museum must have limited interest for the traveler.

Very interesting Museum
Jan 2018 • Couples
We struggled to find this museum at first . But when we found the museum on the 9th floor we were not disappointed at all . It was a bit strange to be taken into a room with a young girl that then puts the lights on for us . There are two rooms and you are not allowed to take photos and I am quite disappointed that people who have reviewed this museum did not listen.
If you are squeamish then maybe it’s not for you but we found it so interesting and we learned so much .
It was a great find for us and I would definitely recommend this Museum.

Worth seeing.

2 rooms with body parts. Interesting if you like autopsy and organs.
To get here you go in to the school-area, turn left, past the first house with a doctor, walk across the courtyard and then turn left. Say hi to the guard and take the elevator.
On the level you'll meet by a lady who doesn't say anything. Next to her there is a donation box.

Fascinating, worth a visit

Found out about this online where they stated it costs 300 baht per person but it was actually donations encouraged.
The place is located on the 9th floor of a dentistry university near siam square.

If you are in to human anatomy then it is a good educational experience.

Excellent​ free museum
May 2017 • Couples
I found this Human Body Museum last year as I was backpacking. This year I returned and revisited to find more English descriptions.

You're not allowed to take photos. But there is a small section where you can hold a real human brain.

This museum is located on the 9th floor of the left hand side building of the dental university, as you walk in. Come out of Siam BTS station, walk through Siam 1 shopping centre towards the back (you'll see a Hello Kitty cafe). The university entrance is directly ahead.

Free entry, donations are welcome. You'll need to sign in once you exit the lift on the 9th floor.

No real staff presence.

I went along November 2016.
Located within "Faculty of Dentistry, Chulalongkorn University
คณะทันตแพทยศาสตร์ จุฬาฯ"
You go upto the 9th floor then sign the visitors book.
No charge and you can wander around looking at all the body parts.
I found it to be very intresting and you can learn more about the human body.
Not for those with a weak stomach I would say.

Good for knowledge

Went there with my family to see what is fascinating about this. Okay, I thought these were made of real flesh, but no, apparently not.

Exhibition is in two rooms. You can finish in one hour. For the scientists and doctors, maybe you will spend more time here.

The exhibits are fascinating, although I wish there are more English signs written to explain in greater depth for some of the exhibits. There are a few exhibits showing the effects of cancer and amoking, although I wish I can compare the actual organs side by side.

My children are a little scared of the exhibits initially, but they get over it quite fast.

It's easily accessible from Siam BTS. Just need to find the right way to go.

Disappointing
Jun 2016
It didn't go as expected. The museum is not as big as I thought (as how museum generally). It's in a university building level 9, there is only one person at the registration desk (i think a student?). You don't need to pay to go in, but it definitely does not worth the time. My driver didn't even know such place so I need to use waze and ask the guard at the entrance. Come down from the back of Novotel Hotel and go into the university.

not gruesome, but garnish to your knowledge about human bodies
Jan 2015 • Solo
In less than an hour, u get to go through human body parts that are made so real! the body parts came alive...with some other useful info and quotes by ancient medical practitioners

Family can get to use it to educate their kids, smokers should wake up from the idea of smoking!

Most importantly, it s not as costly as some similar exhibitions

Some of its online directions seemed not too accurate, it is actually quite near to the train station!

Easy to find, though online directions confusing!
Nov 2015 • Friends
We spent a long time trying to follow directions that told us to go to the "back of Siame square and past the bookstore". Don't!! Go to Siam on the Sky train and exit the side opposite Siam Paragon. Go to street level and then either go through Novotel and out the back door or go through Siam Square shopping mall. Directly opposite the back of the mall is a red pharmacy - go past it down the street that is just one block long. At the end of that street is a gat (British Council to the right of it). Go through the gate and you see a big "lawn sign"; go around it to the right side and keep left. Walk down a block, past the dental aesthetics building on the left and food stalls on right, and it's the next building on your left... It a block and 20 yards from Novotel.
