    Brilliant interactive museum. Lot to see and the artwork is out of this world!! There really some very clever people in this world!!! It’s somewhere a bit different and everyone would have fun if you are 2 or 99!!!!

    A hidden gem just outside of Pattaya, Viharn Sien (also known as Viharnra Sien or Anek Kusala sala) is often overlooked by tourists. We had it all to ourselves majority of the time. A very few people visited apart from us on the day we were there.Viharn Sien is a museum hosted in the former temple that houses an impressive collection of Chinese arts and various artefacts. The main hall is a replica of the Hall of Mental Cultivation in Beijing’s Forbidden City and houses a stunning collection of porcelain and bronze sculptures. One of the most impressive exhibits in the museum is the collection of over 300 terracotta warrior replicas and horses, which are arranged in rows just like the actual terracotta warriors in China. There are three floors to visit and plenty of rooms with a lot to take in (but the interiors are kept pleasantly cool so it is really nice to wonder around). Also, do not skip the exterior around the museum. Some of the sculptures of mythological characters are even more incredible than Marvel’s heroes.

    Have been to Pattaya many times before getting to visit here and it was really awesome. The place has a lot of cool arts and paintings, and not crowded at all so the visit with my girlfriend turn out a great one especially on a hot day. The place is well maintained and the entry fee is relatively low considering what they have maintained.

    They charge for the boots and gloves! It is not possible to stay in that temperature for more than 15 mins without gloves. Complimentary beverages are a joke. They serve Fanta in ice glass, hardly 50ml of it!
    Its tiny with bare minimum attraction. The slides are only part to have some fun. Most of it is photo spots.
    It is also far from Pattaya city. The cab drivers will force you take a package and visit nearby attractions.
    Won't recommend it

    I went with my 1 year old daughter, she enjoyed playing in a small playground. The place is both edutainment center and a shop that sell rubber/latex goods to tourists. Entrance fee is 100 THB/person and we spent around 30 - 45 mins there.

    After visiting Pattaya for many years, we finally decided to visit the Bottle Art Museum. We were pleasantly surprised by the amount of works on display but even so it is a reasonably short tour. We understand that classes are offered & that would be quite interesting. Entrance fee is 200 Baht. An hour max is likely all you'll require.

    Had visited this museum in Pattaya a long back ago. This museum is located off North Pattaya road and is visited by tourists.

    This museum is one of the largest jewelry centers in Asia and exhibits exquisite gemstone collection from all over the world. At the entrance, there is a bejeweled Thai dragon flanked by portraits of the former Kings of Thailand. However, there are some exhibits made from gemstones on display. Also, there are some gemstone ornaments kept for display. Apart from gemstones, there other stuff on display. Also, there is a factory where gemstones are made and polished. There is also a restaurant where tourists can relax and grab a bite. There are guide services in different languages. As it is gemstone museum, there is a tightened security and photography is not allowed inside the museum.

    This museum is ideal for those who are interested in gemstones and willing to purchase them. However, it is a must visit place even though, it is not on the main tourist itinerary.
