It was a fascinating visit with plenty of interactive exhibits. The building was a lovely old colonial building and the museum exhibits were in better condition than other Thai museums. Nice gift shop too

this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to

Unfortunately I haven´t seen anyone to sell in Bangkok. Probably is dificult to find handmade puppets. Maybe you can try in ToyRus, the famous toy´s department store from England. There are in Bangkok too.
