We didn't get to go inside as it's currently under renovation and won't be reopen until next year however the grounds looked beautiful and guards at the door were very kind.

One of my most beloved place! The museum that summarize the Thainess pretty well. But it is getting old and having a big renovation.

Didn't actually go inside but don'twant to mark it down. The reason is because it's closed for renovation until February 2017. Many people were disappointed like me, so I provide the review to inform people, as the information not clear in other sources

Under renovate. Plan to open in april 2017. However, there is a small exhibition called Burmese Close-up, where u can learn more about our neighbourhood.

Great museum about Thai culture and history. It's separated into a few different sections throughout the building and includes mixed media - for example an immersive video at the beginning - so if you wanted to bring your kids they wouldn't be bored. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English, and pointed out the route to follow through the museum. At the exit is a cafe which is nice, but standard museum-cafe prices - higher than somewhere down the street.

The "Minds of Thai Inventors: Looking Back and Pondering" exhibition was quite interesting. The exhibits themselves held somewhat deep meanings. The café portion of this exhibition is also recommended. This exhibition is open until Aug 27, 2017.

What an awesome place. And FREE!!! Come learn about Thailand economics here: a similar crisis to the American house bubble of 2008, how it came to bear the name of a Thai soup, what the government did to get Thailand back on its feet, and what Thailand should learn from it. And all of that through AMAZING designs, really cool sculptures and insightful information boards. Very nice staff, too.

As of Aug 12, 2017 museum on partially open (like 1/5th) due to major renovation. Still worth popping in if nearby to see the building and about 3 exhibits. Small snacks available. Clean restroom

Quirky museum. Wish they'd just called it MuSiam. Worth a visit.

It is one of the places to visit when you visit bangkok. Currently the place is under renovation, so kindly confirm before visiting the same.

During this month, there's only one exhibition on the first floor. So i spent time there just less than half an hour. I expected to see more things. Hope it's better once everything's completely finished.

We came here twice and its under construction. Information about the closing is poor

Set up really lovely with lots of details, old objects, and quite inspiring definitions of "Thainess". All obvious but also many true but more hidden typically Thai style are presented. Unfortunately the sad parts of the current and especially the last 100 years in history are again not pointed out as always. Would have been a great opportunity to finally face reality.

Great place to visit. Always has interesting displays.

Excellent museum that gives a very useful insight to foreigners about thai people.

David O'Brien (05/03/2018 17:27)
Very well presented museum in a beautiful building but it's level is mainly for children, which is great if you happen to be a child. I would have preferred a little bit more historical depth. There are also many gaps in the history presented. That may be to do with legal limits to what they can legally say. Glad i went though.

We visited this museum with two Thai kids. This museum offers some interactive activities that pleased the kids a lot. We all learnt more about Thailand in a funny way. The souvenir shop downstairs sells some interesting things that were worth to buy also. A must visit when your are in Bangkok with your kid(s).

I went here with my family. (3 kids) They came from France. This museum was not just for taking a look. There were some interactive activities that pleased our kids a lot. We learnt more about Thailand here in the fun way. Souvenir shop downstairs sold some interesting things that were worth to buy also. Highly recommended.

Interesting museum about the culture of Thailand from all aspects. Interactive, diverse, beautiful. Excellent for kids! My kids spent a lot of hours there and enjoyed it a lot. They also learned new things about Thailand. So did I.
