This museum is located in the Northeast of Bangkok approximately one hour's drive away. We visited both the National Science Museum and Natural History Museum. Both the museums were very well-maintained. Many of the displays were very interesting and interactive. There were explanations written in English, so it was very easy to understand. There were also staff around, who could... More

This place is great! The science museum, info technology museum and national history museum are all in the same block. I didn't see the NH museum yet, but the science and IT museums are fantastic! Very interactive and helpful staff.

We went there accidentally after purchasing a bus ticket at the Eastern Bus Terminal as it is around the corner. We didn't know that it's a children's museum so we rushed through it rather quickly. Unfortunately around half of the information is in Thai language only and the provided attractions are not maintained very well as most of them did... More

We have visited this museum twice and have really enjoyed ourselves both times. There are 3 buildings in this location: the main Science Museum which looks like a cube resting on its corner, as well as the Natural History Museum and Communications Museum. All 3 are worth the visit but it is a long day. Arrive when the museums open... More

This museum is very modern and suitable for children to learn and touch and try all!. Next to that modern and interesting museum are the museum for natural history and one more about information technology. All can be done same time and day and are free for children. Adults pay small fee.

It is located far away from downtown Bangkok, took us 1 hour plus to reach there by taxi. Went there with two kids (3 year old and 6 year old). We were the only non-Thai visitors there. Many Thai school kids were there. Kids enter for free. The kids were having fun trying the scientific activities there. There are 4... More

We stayed in down town bankok. it took 1:15 to get there... and 45 min back. This was the only down side. There are 2-3 more places to look around the national science museum. (like other museums but we didnt have the time) all indoor. Good A.C. kids loved it

My 8 y.o. daughter and I love this museum! A new addition - the IT museum - along with the old Natural History museum, are also very interesting. A great hands-on and interactive experience.

A great place to gain knowledge. Good to get the kids and adults an appreciation of the marvels and intrigues of science. A real learning and entertaining experience. But then aren't they meant to be, an fun as well.
