This museum is situated in Siriraj Hospital. It displays two parts. One is the history of Siriraj Hospital and modern medical education in Thailand. It is interesting to see how doctors were educated in Thailand a hundred years ago. You’ll probably be surprised to see foreign lecturers signed their names in Thai in the graduates’ degree certificate. The other part... More

A multitude of exhibits involving the human body. Beautifully exhibited and immensely educational. A vast variety of examples of human conditions displayed.

On the opposite side of the River- there's a museum of medical oddities, but unless you're a little skewed you won't find much interesting.

Now the guide books will tell you that this place has some mummified murderers bodies, but they dont make clear that you are met in room 1 with a range of young ie babies cadavres, in jars, which for those of you who aren't expecting could be a bit of a shock. We'd done the usual sites a few times... More

After a ferry ride and some walking we reached this museum. The info online said the entry cost was 40 Baht, but it was like 250 Baht per person. It's an updated facility and it just was a little less interesting than I thought is could be and definitely not worth it at the going entry fee. There are better... More

The museum was pretty cool and factual however I feel there could of been more information in English as this limited is to what we could read even though we had the audio guide which not every point was working which made it hard for us to understand everything. Still recommend

The museum is within the hospital and somewhat hard to find, but once you find it and the staff around it, you have discovered a hidden gem within Thailand. Although its gory and somewhat disturbing, its simple and brilliant at the same time. The setup takes you back to a 1920's biology lab with human specimens. If you are into... More
