Museum Siam is a discovery museum that is located at Sanam Chai road in Bangkok, Thailand. The museum was established in 2007 in the former building of the Ministry of Commerce.[1] It was created to teach the national identity and history of the people of Thailand, and their relationships with neighboring cultures. The motto of the museum is “Play + Learn = เพลิน” (which means 'joyously' in Thai); through a series of interactive exhibits, the museum shows the development of Thailand from the past to present.

Each of the rooms of the museum contain a different theme such as 'Typically Thai', 'Bangkok', 'New Ayutthaya', 'Village Life', 'Change;, 'Politics and Communications', 'Thailand and the World', 'Thailand Today', Thailand Tomorrow', 'Introduction to Suvarnabhumi', 'Suvarnabhumi', 'Buddhism', 'Founding of Ayutthaya', 'Siam' and the 'War Room'. There is also a map room and an immersive theater with a long panoramic screen for watching movies about Thailand’s history.[2] The museum also has temporary exhibits and learning activities.

Sanam Chai MRT station is located directly in front of the museum.
