Looking for something to do on a hot or wet day? The ‘Muse Pass’ is an economical way to visit 56 museums and multiple learning centers across Thailand. The pass costs only 199 Baht and this then gives you free entry to 56 museums. A couple of the bigger museums cost more than this pass so you will get your investment back straight away. You can buy at most participating museums from now until 30 September 2017. You can also buy it at all KTC Touch branches. I bought mine at Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall in Bangkok. The muse pass is valid for one year from date of purchase. More information can be found on the Muse Pass website.
When you buy the Muse Card, they give you a foldable map that lists all of the free museums and learning centers. Unfortunately, it is all in Thai. So, I have gone through the list of museums and translated them before adding them to the above Google Map. As you can see, thirty of the museums are in and around Bangkok. But this year, every region of Thailand is represented. Hopefully next year even more institutions will be added.
Some of the main museums include: Museum Siam, Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall, Phya Thai Palace, Bangkok Folk’s Museum, Sam Sen Nai Philatelic Museum, Police Museum Parusakawan Palace, King Prajadhipok Museum, Thai Film Museum, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Information Technology Museum, Siriraj Museum, 3 Silapa Rattanakosin Resource Center-SSRU, Krungthai Art Gallery, The Queen’s Gallery, Department Of Lands Museum, National Aviation Museum of The Royal Thai Airforce, Southeast Asian Ceramics Museum, and Batcat Museum & Toys Thailand.
