It was a fascinating visit with plenty of interactive exhibits. The building was a lovely old colonial building and the museum exhibits were in better condition than other Thai museums. Nice gift shop too

Went by the Museum Siam the other day, and found it closed currently for much-needed renovations work. At this stage, the Museum Siam is scheduled to reopen late-April 2017.

As we were there on January, 5th 2017, the museum was closed for renovation. I could not find any information for how long, neither were workers there understanding English.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most

Unfortunately I haven´t seen anyone to sell in Bangkok. Probably is dificult to find handmade puppets. Maybe you can try in ToyRus, the famous toy´s department store from England. There are in Bangkok too.
