A modern, interactive museum on the same street as the famous Wat Po and the Grand Palace. Museum of Siam (มิวเซียมสยาม) is different from old traditional museum. It offers a learning resource under the concept of the “Discovery Museum” and cleverly utilizes interactive technology.
Museum Siam houses a permanent exhibition entitled “The Account of Thailand” presenting the history of the land and people of Thailand from ancient times up to the present day.
The visitors will discover answer to questions such as “Who are Thais”? and “What is the meaning of Thainess?”
The stories are displayed in 17 interesting galleries.
I am not a museum person. I only remember how boring the museum visits were when I was a little girl. I also disliked the history subjects when I was a student, rarely remember much more than the topics from my textbooks. In this venue, I surprisingly learnt a lot about my own country by playing games and watching videos.
If you are interested to learn more about Thailand, spending a few hours here and you will understand how the Kingdom developed and what Thai people, and their culture, is all about.
