The Museum of the Human Body opens in Bangkok

If your interests are leaning more to the macabre then you will probably be keen to visit Bangkok’s latest museum. It is called The Museum of the Human Body and has just opened at the Chulalongkorn University’s Faculty of Dentistry in Bangkok (see map). The museum displays more than 130 pieces of anatomy specimens preserved by using the new plastination technology. The specimens worth over 100 million baht were donated by the Japan Medical and Dental University. The Museum of Human Body is one of only 11 such museums in the world and the first in South East Asia. It is open every Wednesday and Friday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and admission is free. More pictures can be seen on the Thai Rath website. After September 2012, it is believed they will start charging an entrance fee. For more information please call 02 218-8635.

      I saw a Thai media report that said “free until the end of September”. Its not clear if that means you have to pay after that date or if the exhibition closes. I will try and find out.

    Do you know of a phone number or contact? This might make an interesting field trip for my grade 11 and 12 biology students.
