A little more than a kennel-park, a little cheaper than lunch.
If you’ve been around a bit on our site, you probably know that Thailand is full of attractions that fit the whole family. Water parks, amusement parks, huge aquariums and zoos are here in abundance. Bangkok is a huge city with a very wide variety of options, so we have found for you the most interesting museums for families in the Thai capital.
Museum of forgeries
“The Counterfeit Museum” is actually a large law firm in central Bangkok. The firm’s services employ international giants to find and stop the distribution of counterfeits. You can see more than 4,000 more and more counterfeit fakes of clothes, shoes, watches, glasses, cosmetics, alcohol, cigarettes, electronic devices and more. Your guide is one of the firm’s employees, and will be happy to tell you the stories behind some of the frauds (such as the seizure of 150,000 pairs of shoes at the border). Your guide will also tell you how to detect counterfeits, even the most accurate ones, so they will not work on you (did you know that the clock does not have a CE button? Some of the counterfeits are so successful, in fact, that they are placed next to the source and next to them are G for genuine and F for Fake.
We admit, here we are talking about a museum for hikers, and it is better to go to it with older children. It is home to the most important exhibits from the Thai art world, local history and culture. The museum building was once a royal palace, located right next to the main palace known to us today. He tells the story of the Thai people from its inception until today, through the various monarchies. The highlight of the museum is the excellent instructors, who will take you through all parts of the museum in perfect English, and will be able to answer any questions you may have about the country, the monarchy, the culture, the people and the customs. If you’ve been around Thailand and been filled with questions you can not search on Google, it’s a great place to start your day.
The Doll Museum
This small museum shows more than 500 dolls used for the traditional Thai Kun Theater. The intricate dolls are intricate handicrafts, which gives them many details and lots of character. All the dolls fit into the show “Kun,” which tells the story of the Thai mythology – the Ramakian. In addition, the colorful costumes of the dolls, which are also custom made, are displayed. Some dolls are offered for sale, so you can leave with extraordinary souvenirs.
The Batman Museum
This museum is actually the private collection of a man by the name of Somchai Nittimongkuluchi, an ardent Batman private collector who, on his journey to collect all of the detective’s existing collection items in a robe, found himself with 50,000 rare items. Now, Batcat Toy Museum has expanded to include rooms with additional collections: Spider-Man, Star Wars, and a host of sculptures by Marvell and DC. In fact, there are so many figurines and items in the museum that you will find it hard to find a movie or an animated series that is not being represented here: Dorimon, Pixar Films and Disney. If the kids love movies and comics, this is a great stop to stop.
So the real name of this museum is Muang Boran. All of its 1,000 square feet are open-air (the largest museum of its kind in the world) and it contains 100 accurate and impressive miniatures of prominent Thai buildings. The various miniatures are scattered on a “map” that illustrates their true locations in Thailand and helps to understand the structure of the country and its architectural treasures. Here you will find the ancient capital cities Sukhothai and Ayutthaya, exceptional Buddha statues and even a floating market and functions for the benefit of visitors. Please note that the museum is just outside the city limits and will require a short drive.
Reptile Research Institute
The reptile and infertile lovers will be in paradise. This great museum is devoted entirely to snakes. Of course you can see them in their natural surroundings, enjoy changing exhibits and giant snake puppets – and also watch a dance show with snake effects (we know it sounds strange, it seems more strange), and more informative shows with … snakes. The place holds more than 50 different species of snakes, and everyone who is there really hopes they will not decide to run away. An adult ticket costs 550 baht, and children will pay 250. There are also other reptiles in place, but as the grandiose design gives away – It’s All Abaut de Snakes. You can get more details on the site of the Serpentarium.
