The museum is a great place to learn about the history of Thailand. The history is tastefully displayed in this historic building. The building was used as the Ministry of Commerce for many years and was restored for this museum. The history lesson begins at the front desk with the question "Why did Thailand change its name from Siam". The museum then guides you through a modern display of historical information from the time of the dinosaurs to modern times. The museum is great for kids and adults alike.
