I found this museum quite interesting. The museum itself is air conditioned and easy to walk around. We had a good afternoon walking around and taking photos. 4 Stars.

Wife and i visited the museum - great for those interested in dinosaur relics. Not just dino bones and full size models, but diaramas of life in prehostoric times. i loved it, but many may not.

Payed doubled price as tourist and didn't see anything interesting, no real fossils or new insights about dinosaurs. P.S. Also no need to do the walk through the park, there is nothing to see.

Great place for kids and grown ups alike. Admission fee is only 60 Baht per person and it explains very well the history of the earth from the big bang to today. Unfortunately a bit remote and the restaurant was closed so hunger drove us...More
