About
A wonderful place to take the kids. It's got an outdoor water park and several outdoor play areas including a giant sandbox and a climbing gym. Don't forget to pack a swim suit for them if they plan to get wet. There is a play area for toddlers ages 1-2 and another indoor play area for kids aged 3-6. The age 3-6 play area is designed to be a town with kids checking out different professions. Fun!
Duration: 2-3 hours

The area
Neighbourhood: Chatuchak
Every weekend, thousands of tourists make their way up to this Northern Bangkok suburb to get lost in an enormous maze of shops at the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Home to almost 10,000 vendors, you’ll find everything from vintage sneakers to comic books and Thai handicrafts being sold here. You name it, Chatuchack probably sells it. The market is a great place to pick up souvenirs, but be sure to bargain for a good price. After a day of shopping and strolling around, the lush green lanes of Chatuchak Park are a welcome relief.

Not many westerners know of this hidden gem for young children, but I’d say this is the number one thing to do with children on a hot day (so every day) in Bangkok.

The paddling pool is a downright hit, and our two young children absolutely loved it. The sessions are once per hour with a 30 minute cleaning slot in between. No reservations needed, just show up at the gate of the pool.

There’s plenty of shade to escape from the sun and a kids show (in Thai) as well. The best thing is, that it’s all free!

Do note: there were no restaurants, so bring your own lunch (there’s a 7-11 in Mixt Chatuchak opposite the road). There are plenty of picnic spots in the shade.

This was an excellent place to spend time with the kids which was also educational. Entrance is free and the place is spacious. The only drawback was that most of it was in Thai. It would be good to have a English option as well.

Today I lost my Apple Airtag. Then I informed someone in the office in that place, and within 15 minutes a cleaner found it and gave it back to me.

Great for the kids. Everything is written in Thai though and very little english so difficult for foreigners but still fun. Free entry.

‘Kidzania on a budget’ as the elder child put it. In a good way. Traveller with small child under 5, and was pleasantly surprised by how many activities there were here. Loved the airplane, fire engine, vegetable farm and the outdoor climbers. Bring passport for foreigners, and get a wrist tracker. And you’re done. Totally free, and staff were not unfriendly or harsh at all per some reviews. Good mix of outdoors play and cool aircon indoor ones (we came between 1130 and 2pm). Each zone resets on the hour: and you have to wait, so do check map and l think ahead which ones you want to catch. Bring water and drinks.

We really enjoyed our time at the Children’s Discovery museum. We visited in early Jan 2023 with our 4 and 7 year olds. You still need masks, passports, but no Covid tests, were required to enter.

As some of the reviews indicate, sections are only briefly open, apparently on a schedule (which we didn’t figure out) for 40mins and then are closed for cleaning. Yes, it would be nice if all the activities were open, But, we still found lots to entertain the kids, including a fab outdoor playground.

It’s free and a good “reward” for the kids making it through the week-end market.

A great place to visit with kids. Entry of museum is free but it require a photo identity so must carry passport with it. Plus it's entrance require a rapid covid test. So be prepared for it

Service provided is matching with entrance fee (free)
They organize all activities by time and it was difficult to make all in the same day. The schedule may be revise to provide more play time to kids. All activities close at the same time for cleaning. However, kids enjoyed the museum.

The positives are:
Close to metro station
Free
Lots of activities for big and small children
Staff in the dinosaur exhibit are friendly.

Negatives:
Hard to find entrance, we tried to walk through the park but there is a big hate around the park so long hot walk to find the entrance .
Lots of areas closed for cleaning or repair however they were dirty anyway, for example, mould all of the splash pad, bad smelling buildings.
90% of the staff do not really interact with children unless they are telling them off. There were about 100 people working there, constantly following and watching your every move. Even following into the bathrooms.
You have to take your shoes off the second you walk near an activity, staff are very aggressive with this.
I put my son down inside the 0-2 room, he ran off to play, staff were yelling telling us to take all our shoes off, my son was wearing black socks that might have looked like shoes. Staff were yelling at my husband and I to take our shoes off while yelling at my 1 year old for his socks. Very stressful.
Staff run at you to when you approach a building to tell you to use another entrances or that cleaning is in progress. So not even let you get close to signs to read them.
I was 90% of the walk towards the lift then told to use another walkway, as it’s one way, I felt this was unnecessary with my son already waiting at the lift. I wasn’t allowed to go to him, staff very aggressive and pushy, very intimidating, wouldn’t let me past. There are lots of signs but mostly in Thai so easy to do the wrong thing. Even if there is English on a sign you can hardly get close enough to read it before staff and pushing you away.
We were worried that we would be yelled at whenever my son touched anything, disappointing when it is advertised as a place where children can explore and discover.
My husband I I felt very uncomfortable.

I get that there are rules and people are doing their jobs but there is a nice way to interact with visitors. No need to be so rude and strict.

It was a very negative experience and big waste of time for my husband and I.

This behaviour is very different from what we are used to in Australia. I wouldn’t recommend this to Australian or other western visitors.

The museum is for little kids, probably older than mine (5 and 2). It contains several sections and plenty of information, however, what I didn't particularly like was the lack of staff around the museum to explain to kids what each section is about. We kind of had to find our way through it and most of the information was in Thai. However, my kids enjoyed parts of the museum. We didn't get to watch the show at the planetarium as we had to wait for a couple of hours to get in.
