The Bangkok Science Museum and Planetarium in Sukhumvit is an interactive museum and planetarium featuring activities, exhibits, models, multimedia presentations and real objects.

Plus, it’s easy to reach, right next to Ekkamai BTS Skytrain Station. Admission costs 30 Baht per adult and 20 Baht per child/student. It's also important to be aware that the signage can be poor – which can mean the buildings are difficult to find.

Many of the exhibits feature modern media and some include tests and experiments, with specific activity days available for students and the general public. Highlights include an interactive pirate ship, play supermarket and the world of insects, which are most popular with young children.

The semi-dome planetarium is probably the most popular permanent fixture at Bangkok Science Museum. Opened in 1964, the large planetarium is the oldest in Thailand and since its revamp in 2016 features a changing programme as well as 360-degree visuals, an in-built fish-eye lens and surround sound. English language shows take place every Tuesday at 10:00 and costs an additional 30 baht per child and 50 baht per adult.
