Thai Human Imagery Museum

The Thai Human Imagery Museum (Thai: พิพิธภัณฑ์หุ่นขี้ผึ้งไทย) is a wax museum located in Nakhon Pathom Province, Thailand. Due to the tropical climate of Thailand the figures are made of fibreglass instead of the traditional wax. The museum practices dual pricing, with people who do not look Thai paying a 10 times higher entry fee.

History[edit]

The museum was opened on 14 June 1989.[1]

Exhibitions[edit]

Exhibits include Thai historical figures, including kings of the Chakri Dynasty, displays of Thai culture and traditions, and famous fictional characters, including those from Sunthorn Phu's epic poem, Phra Abhai Mani.
