Too bad. Museum appears to be (permanently?) closed. Heads-up would have been great, but then again, we didn't do our homework. So fault is on us. No need to visit this construction site ;-)

Museum is closed. Nobody knows when it's reopening. The inner gardens are nice to walk around. There are no refreshments in this area.

Located adjacent to the Romaneenart Park, this was the old Bangkok Remand Prison which was a maximum security prison. It is now closed for renovations with no reopening date. The exhibits are supposedly gruesome so we will be back when it reopens!

The museum is presently closed for some renovations but walking around it you can see the cells where the inmates were kept. No dates for completion was provided by the security guard. Lovely little park next door.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,

this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
