I think the National Museum gets more press, but this place was great! It details all the different time periods and cultures that came together to make what we know as Thailand today. It has lots of interactive activities and videos, some of which, like a video game wherein you have to maneuver a fiberglass cannon against advancing enemy troops, are more fun than educational. Many of the activities and exhibits are hilarious, showing that Thais view at least parts of their history without too much sanctity.
The staff was incredibly friendly, and there's a decent cafe at the museum that has both inside and outside seating and reasonable food and drink prices.
It's a great place to hit after seeing Wat Pho and/or the Grand Palace complex.
