    Tiz also really convenient. Just get on the BTS. It's bout 100 meters from Ekamai.


    4 hours would be a decent time to spend there. Lots and lots of fun interactive stuff for kids.

    Tiz also criminally cheap.

    Recommended at least once.

    Went a few years ago and it was a shithole and all in Thai. Looks worth a revisit. Shall keep it under my hat for a daddy-daughter trip so that I can retain the title of The Fun One.

    And also the bars nearby for a snack on the way home...
    I'd like to see what morning looks like
    Don't wanna drink pint after pint
    I wanna wake up without feeling sick
    But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic

    The place hasn't been done up since the 90s ...unless they've done it in the last 12 months since l went

    Did you get the wobbly seats in the planetarium?

    Get food poisoning at the scraggy food court?

    Catch diptheria in the rancid toilets?

    At most you could kill a couple hours or so but it sure ain't a full day out


    The drugs simulator was fun.

    Great educational place for kids to grasp an idea of how things work. I doubt anything there is taught in a basic government school curriculum

    Took her to the Natural History Museum and Science Museum in London last year.

    Cheaper than 50b as they were free, but to be honest, for a 4/5 yr old the interactive Thai planetarium was more fun. My scientific data and technical specifications of the actual Apollo 10 command module just went in one ear and out the other.





    You'd like it there Pat.





    "And this is the Locomotive 'Puffing Billy'. Driving wheel diameter 3 feet 3 inches; cylinders 9 inches x 36 inches; working pressure 50lb; weight approximately 8 tons, exclusive of tender. Puffing Billy is the world’s oldest surviving steam locomotive. Dating to 1813-1814, it was built by William Hedley, Jonathan Forster, and Timothy Hackworth, for use at the Wylam Colliery near Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. Built to replace the horses used on the tramway, Puffing Billy was one of three engines built by Hedley, the resident engineer at the colliery."


    "It go choo-choo?"





    *sigh*

    Hard to fathom that one out

    Last year the science and British museums considered charging tourists to cover maintenence costs.

    Obviously it didn't or hasn't happened yet. I doubt it would go down well with the Thai tourists

    Half of the British museum is a criminal evidence room for stolen goods

    Yeah, sacrilege.

    The mind of a 4/5 yr old seems to be more interested in rooms full of interactive physical activities, than a 200 yr old locomotive sitting there.

    Though she did enjoy seeing the (pre-taught) Easter Island heads and Egyptian displays.



    Personally, as a non-5 yr old, I'd take the NHM anyday.

    Nuff said


    Real shame the Railfan museum at JJ Park closed down. You could climb on the locos.
    I think the private funding consortium gave up after low visitor numbers

    You can still look through the windows at the engines. Unless its raining of course

    I say snow, its mainly ice....you wouldn't wanna get hit in the face by a snowball in there.
