    This museum focus on “Being Thai-ness”
    Day 6 (Sunday 18 Jun 2023) in Bangkok. We took the blue line to Sanam Chai station on a Sunday morning, which is as rated one of the four most beautiful MRT stations in Bangkok. A short distance away is Museum Siam. Student cards outside of Thailand are recognised here and they get discounts on the entrance fees. This museum focus on “Being Thai-ness” with exhibits as well as interactive displays in English as well. Do not miss the architecture display of the building on the ground level which is with a visit.

    For young and old.
    A wonderful whimsical look at the answer to the question, what is Thainess? Set in a gorgeous neo classical European styled building this simple journey through the various elements of what it is to be Thai is well worth the time. Being close to Wat Pho, home of the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, you can easily tack a visit to the museum on afterwards. It's a nice peaceful wind down from the crowds at Wat Pho. Audio guides in your language and lockers to store your things are both free. It's a very interactive display so good for the younger travellers.

    A place where Thainess was brought to life!
    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!

    Fun museum suitable for all.
    A fun and interactive museum to answer the question of 'What is Thainess?' There are an array of rooms which touch on different topics and also look at how things have changed in Thailand over time. When we went there was a section on textile waste and how they were looking at minimising this through recycling projects. The staff are friendly and helpful and a it was a great way to spend a few hours.

    Learned about Thai culture at the Museum of Siam
    The Musem of Siam was very cool because we got to learn about historical Thai culture before some of the more modern traditions became integrated in society. We got to try on different types of clothes, sit in a replica classroom, play the games that were entertainment back then, and watch how different meals were created through a projector onto a table. It was very interactive as well, which made it more fun. There was a video in one room and a puzzle in the other. Overall, it was a very fun and engaging way to learn about Thai traditions and Thai culture.

I am extremely disappointed with the Museum. I had high expectations to learn about the history of Thailand but I left it without any useful or factual info. I have just rushed through the "exhibits", none were of interest to me. The exhibition is on junior level, with low level of educational nature or maybe better to say with the purpose to entertain the visitor and not to educate. It is more for students maybe. The good news is that the entrance fee is very low.

I found this the most unuserfriendly museum. All about 'thainess'. Really difficult to navigate. Terrible audio. Irritating staff who kept trying to redirect you. Very disappointing experience.

Well done and very informative. As a senior, you not only get in free but also are given an audio tour set.

Fun, Educative, Lovley Staffs and Fast to explore. Good spot to start, take a break and end your journey. Besides the museum, the place has cafes and clean toilet.

I had a great and educational time at this museum. The museum is very close to the Grand Palace, so I decided to walk down and check it out before heading back to my hotel. And I am glad I did.

The exhibit they were highlighting while I was there was the "What is Thai" experience. Through this exhibition, I was able to learn the history of Thailand, its people, religion, and culture. The museum had various types of exhibits that are sure to engage all age levels and is great for families. While also being great for solo travelers or older visitors looking for a more educational experience. The exhibits taught me a lot about what being Thai is and was a great way to start my vacation in Thailand.

The museum signs are in Thai and English making it easy for people to read along about the history. But they also offered free audio guides as well to take with you through the museum. They were super easy to use where you just type the number of the room your in and the audio would guide you through the exhibit.

Overall my experience at this museum was great. It helped me learn a lot about Thai history and culture and was definitely a good way to start my vacation in Thailand and helping me better understand the country I will be visiting.
