Bangkok Forensic Museum

Kind of a weird museum, the Bangkok Forensic Museum can be found in Siriraj Hospital. It is a very interesting museum which is considered morbid by many. But if you like unusual things, you can not miss to visit this museum. It includes a pathology- and forensic museum and an anatomical museum. The first one presents babies who were affected by genetic disorders. The bodies are preserved in formaldehyde. I do not suggest it to sensible people. The anatomical museum includes skeletons, body parts and presents genetic anomalies. It is surely a very interesting exhibition. The museum is open from Monday to Saturday from 9:00 to 16:00.

Kamthieng House Museum

Situated in the district of Sukhumvit, the Kamthieng House Museum is actually a renovated teak house which was brought from a jungle village. If you are interested in traditional rural life, a visit to this museum is the perfect choice. It includes beautiful furnishing, artefacts, different tools, a rice granary and even a loom used to weave silk. The museum can be visited from Tuesday to Saturday from 09:00 to 17:00.

Batcat Toy Museum

If you travel to Bangkok with your children, do not miss to take them to the fascinating toy museum. The recently opened museum is the largest toy museum of the country. It is situated nearby the city, but the way is worth making to see the fantastic collection of toys. The museum includes about 50.000 toys, games, magazines, costumes relating to Batman, Spiderman, Superman, Captain America, Toy Story, Monsters Inc. and other epics. The museum is open from Monday to Friday from 10:00 until 17:00 and on weekends from 09:00 to 20:00. (December 2012)
