In a renovated nice building, what was the ministry of commerce The Museum of Siam, known as the discovery, with the slogan play, learn. Well organized and instructive, kids and parents will have fun. The exhibits are on the 3rd and second floors, by the stairs or the hiding lift. You enter the first room through the giant bronze “ribbon”, called the Roong, then the map room with a panoramic long screen to watch pop-up displays with sound, light about Thailand history. The core of the Museum of Siam is Thainess, history from the past to the present, and what does it mean to be Thai, what is the Thai culture.
