    I arrived to the Museum via a Grab and there was good direction as to what to do. I got into a tour straight away, no waiting.
    You do have to do the 45 min tour.
    Worth the trip, and can spend around 2 hrs there. Beautiful little place.

    Very useful and recommended visit to this huge museum on Thai history starting approx 5,000 years ago - and with help from 2 very knowledgeable ladies we had a great tour in English which lasted well over 2 hours!

    English tours are certainly available on Wednesday, from 09:30and they are free of charge as run by volunteers; entrance however was THB200 but was money well spent.

    After all the walking, up and down stairs and between builduings there us a small family run Thai restaurant, extremely affordable and with good food (recommended their Pad Thai)

    Enjoy!

    Madame Tussauds Museum is one of the most famous museums in all countries of the world. What is special about this museum is the famous figures in Asia and Thailand. I advise you to visit it as part of the display with aquariums like mine. Worth a visit.

    Pretty interesting, but also very graphic, so be prepared.
    Put on your CSI cap.

    Several weeks after I viewed it, my wife told me a story.
    Apparently her mother was pregnant and riding a motorscooter near by, and got in an accident. Lost the baby, and it ended up in that museum.
    Glad she told me afterwards.

    Museum Siam is a must-see when visiting Bangkok. It feels like you've been transported back in time as soon as you walk in. With incredible care, they have re-created all of these traditional Thai homes, marketplaces, and celebrations. You can almost smell the street food sizzling! The museum makes everything interactive and interesting

    Museum Siam gives such an authentic look at what Thailand is all about, past and present. Definitely put it on your bucket list!

    Suan Pakkad or cabbage garden used to be the house of the grandson of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) but is now a museum. There are 8 rooms connected into a spacious house. In the rooms many artefacts from different countries and periods, not only Thai. Pottery, jewellery, carvings, musical instruments etc. Not a typical tourist place, so quiet. If you want to enjoy something different I could recommend to spend around 2 hours here. Photography inside is not allowed and entrance fee is 100 baht.

    We went to Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall and enjoyed our visit a lot. The place was clean, the staff welcoming and helpful. The exhibition was wonderful and interesting too. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough time to carefully read the few English texts because the staff was asking to move to another room. The audio guide was in a very poor state. The voice was broken, the background music too loud. But the responsible guide at the second and third floor was fantastic. A very kind and thoughtful young man. He taught us so much about Thai culture and history. Plus he answered all of our questions. ☺️

    A nice kinda "Museum" more an original house, where someone lived inside long times ago.
    It´s a good place to calm down and imagine the life in Bangkok nearly 80 years ago.
    The staff is so friendly and can explain some things in english, if you ask.
    You can watch the origin items, they´ve used or where used around 1930.
    It´s completly free, you only have to sign in and if you leave a tip, they will be happy

    Just steps away from the steel and glass retail of Terminal 21 at the Asok BTS stop is this “northern Thai ethnological museum “. It is an exposition of the motivating beliefs, ideologies and practice of the Lanna lifestyle in northern Thailand through the exhibits in this original 19th century northern Thailand home. There are adequate signs in English and subtitled videos. You can read every sign and watch every video in about an hour. Opens at 9 am Tue - Sunday. Admission was 100 Bhat or about 3$.

    The Prasart Museum is a beautiful home with even better gardens. It's a bit of a hassle to make the required appointment, but it was definitely worth it! The best bet (and what we did) is to ask your hotel to contact them and make the appointment. The Prasart Museum's number is +66-2-379-3601. They only make reservations within 10 days of the day you'll be there, but we had no trouble with that. They're closed Monday.

    The gardens and ponds were so pretty! You get a private tour with Mr. Prasart's right hand man, he was a very friendly guy. All told I think we were there for 90 minutes. We really liked the place.

    Perfect Chinese market. Food, drinks and all what you want. Gifts shop, tea shop, souvenir shop, electronic music shop, porn DVD, sex toys, polish and towels for car , spears for motorcycle .... but if you want to eat in this place you need waiting .

    A museum cum residence that you should not miss, located in the city centre behind Siam Paragon and Siam Kempinski Hotel. It is still home to Thailand's Crown Princess. The grounds are beautifully manicured, populated with numerous local plants and trees. The exhibitions depict life in the royal palace over the past century. There is also a restaurant served by the palace staff. Reservations are required for both venues. Entry fee is 150 baht.

    The house is in a wonderful park setting in central Bangkok. You can just walk around the park which has a number of really nice restaurants and take a personalised tour of the house which we did, it lasts about 50 minutes. The tour of the house was well worth it. The is a beautiful building constructed througout in teak, you get to find out the background as to whom built it and why and also learn about where the very large collection.of artefacts came from. The guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand.
