Children's Discovery Museum Bangkok

Activities for Kids in Bangkok

The Children’s Discovery Museum Bangkok underwent extensive renovations in 2014, with 70-million Thai baht being pumped into the site, helping to improve the indoor and outdoor centre located at Chatuchak Park. The result is nothing short of impressive, with enough fun and educational activities to keep the kids occupied for a whole day, such as digging up dinosaur bones in the archeological site and creating giant bubbles from the inside! 

You can find the Children’s Discovery Museum Bangkok located in the north of the city near the famous Chatuchak Weekend Market. Just take the BTS Skytrain to Mo Chit or MRT to Kampangphet and then it’s a short walk from there – just make sure you arrive early as the current opening hours are from 10:00-16:00 daily.

Bangkok's Children Discovery Museum encourages a hands-on approach to learning; with interactive displays, it calls on a 'discovery learning process', whereby children enter the experience and participate in learning rather than remaining a passive (and bored) viewer. It’s a perfect place for inquisitive young minds to figure things out for themselves, as well as for smaller kids just wanting to touch everything.

This museum gets kids excited and encourages them to ask questions about how the world works. Head to the ‘science gallery’ to create your own giant bubble from inside or try to understand the nature of illusion by entering the ‘tunnel of mirrors’. In the 'life' section, examine the processes of the mind and body - experiment with the human kinetic processes yourself and check out your heart rate by scaling an indoor bicycle. 

There’s brand new sections including ‘Build Our City’ where the little ones can learn about construction, urban plan or just make a cool multistory building from the blocks before knocking it all down in spectacular fashion. Another cool new addition to be added to Children’s Discovery Museum Bangkok is the ‘Dino Detective’ park, which allows kids to learn more about these prehistoric beasts, as well as try their hand doing some digging at the archeological outside. 

Outside is a fun playground, which challenges anyone to conquer the labyrinth of the ‘Pyramid Net’ – or to walk across a wonky bridge then swing down a spiral ladder. During the day it can get pretty hot outside (indoors is fully air-conditioned – don’t worry); thankfully, there is a fountain area with cooling jets of water spurting up, which is fun way to cool down in the heat… just don’t forget a towel and change of clothes for the kids.

Elsewhere at the Children’s Discovery Museum Bangkok there is an onsite canteen for lunch and refreshments, and there is also a library where you can buy books and educational resources to take home. Entrance is free and do remember it shuts relatively early at 16:00. To find it, from BTS or MRT Chatuchak Station, head towards Chatuchak Weekend Market, turn right at Kampangphet 3 Rd., and keep walking (about 10 min) until you see the museums's sign on a small soi on your left.
