Bangkok Corrections Museum, Bangkok

#41 of 85 in Museums in Bangkok
The Bangkok Corrections Museum is an incarceration museum in Bangkok, Thailand. It is located on Maha Chai Road. It was planned to follow the Brixton Prison of England. The prison museum was established in 1939 in another prison, the Bang Kwang Central Prison, which had served as a training center for corrections officers and gained the notorious title "Bangkok Hilton" in the way that the Hanoi Hilton did in Vietnam for its brutal prison history.
The museum records the macabre history and prison life in Thailand. Later the remainder of the site became the Rommaninat Park, officially opening on August 7, 1999 by Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn.
The museum is closed for the foreseeable future.
