The National Science Museum is a science museum in Thailand. Located in Khlong Ha, Khlong Luang District, Pathum Thani Province, it was officially opened in 2000 to celebrate Queen Sirikit's 60th birthday. The museum operates under the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation.

In addition to typical scientific exhibits, the museum's sixth floor features exhibits on traditional Thai technologies such as pottery, carving, wickerwork, and metallurgy. The museum's fourth floor examines how Thailand's geography has shaped the Thai people through the centuries.

As of 2006, the museum's first floor held a special exhibit in honor of the Thai king, Bhumibol Adulyadej, or Rama IX. The king celebrated his 60th year on the Thai throne in the summer of that year.

The museum is also known as Queen Sirikit the Great Science Museum; Sirikit is the queen consort of King Bhumibol, the museum opened with her royal support.

  • It's wonderful place for family visit,especially for bring the young kid. Combination of science, knowledge feeder and entertainment that presented uniquely. For one whole building it may take 2 to 3 hours to really bring the kid enjoy the museum. The museum held some event in certain time as like exhibition and star show. For the Thai people Under 3years old and over 60 years old are free.
  • There is so much to see that one day is not enough to explore all areas thoroughly. What I liked the most was that you can conduct many experiments on your own, and there are explanations in Thai and English. A science show is available in English as well.
