Visit 56 museums in Thailand for only 199 Baht with Muse Pass 5

February 26, 2017

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.

    It is good to introduce a museum pass but not everything is as it should be

    1. Why is there a deadline? You should be able to buy this pass at any time

    2. Why is the list of museums written only in Thai? This is not very friendly towards foreigners

    Richard Barrow: please contact the institution that issues this pass and ask them to do better.

      It’s a seasonal thing. Each year there’s a different number of museums taking part. Some dropped out this year but many new ones. This is Muse Pass 5. Next year there will be a new pass with new museums.

      They do have English on their website, but it hasn’t been updated this year. I think the booklet was bilingual last year, but only in Thai this year.

        Thanks for your message. I understand the system about the seasons. But the list of museums included should be in Thai and in English every year. And the official website should be updated every year. That is why I suggest that you contact the institution that issues the pass and ask them to do better.

          I’m just grateful that they included foreigners. Some of these places have a two price system. So, to get in with the same deal as Thais is a win.

    I tried to purchase a muse 5 card from the KTC touch branch in Ladprao today and I was refused due to not having a credit card with them or wanting one. Perhaps I should try one of the participating museums?

      Thanks for letting me know. I bought mine at Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall. I tweeted yesterday a full list of other places where you can buy.
