Very informative session to know more about history and culture of Thailand. Extremely educational and impressive presentation. If you are planning to do both tours I suggest you take a short break after the first session because you might get tired after two hours of standing and walking around the museum.

I was the only English speaker for my group and the tour guide still patiently explained to me in English after their presentation in Thai. Make sure you get the audio guide upon registration for non Thai visitors.

There are two exhibitions and you have to choose the right one. The visit will take you 2 hours. So be prepared and take time with it. I attended the one about history of Thailand with so beautiful multimedia presentation. It was quite informative, formal and overwhelming but worthwhile. Another one about history of Bangkok will be more fun, as I have heard.
The True cafe on the Loft offers you an incomparable scenary of historical Ratchadamnoen Road and is a must experience.
This would be a good rest after visiting hot and crowded Grand Palace and Temple of Emerald Buddha. If you have BTS card, I think the promotion is still available

First of all, make sure you have 2 hours to join the tour. But trust me, if you want to learn more about Thai's culture and history, this is exactly the place you looking for. You can choose between two type of tours, the historical or the culture. Or if you have 4 hours free time, you can join both! Unfortunately majority the tour will be explain in Thai, however, bring your passport so you can rent the audio speaker that will help you explain in English. If I'm not wrong, the ticket is only cost THB100.

There are two exhibition routes to take here (you can visit both for 1 ticket). We're lucky to have tried the Exhibition No. 2 first because we really enjoyed how it was presented. What really attracted us was how different forms of media were used per segment: from motor-controlled boat, to functioning postcard, great use of projectors, and definitely how the content of each history details were well researched.

It will be kind of hard for a foreigner to understand some of the English pronunciation of the young ushers but you can still enjoy watching the videos with English dub (heard through a radio). Not bad for paying just 100Baht per person!
