Museum Siam

Museum Siam is a discovery museum that is located at Sanam Chai road in Bangkok, Thailand. The museum was established in 2007 in the former building of the Ministry of Commerce. It was created to teach the national identity and history of the people of Thailand, and their relationships with neighboring cultures. The motto of the museum is “Play + Learn = เพลิน” (which means 'joyously' in Thai); through a series of interactive exhibits, the museum shows the development of Thailand from the past to present.

Each of the rooms of the museum contain a different theme such as 'Typically Thai', 'Bangkok', 'New Ayutthaya', 'Village Life', 'Change;, 'Politics and Communications', 'Thailand and the World', 'Thailand Today', Thailand Tomorrow', 'Introduction to Suvarnabhumi', 'Suvarnabhumi', 'Buddhism', 'Founding of Ayutthaya', 'Siam' and the 'War Room'. There is also a map room and an immersive theater with a long panoramic screen for watching movies about Thailand’s history. The museum also has temporary exhibits and learning activities.

Sanam Chai MRT station is located directly in front of the museum.
