Sorry, no AC: Museum Siam free two weeks, possibly sweaty

A hip museum in the old part of town is offering free entry starting today, but it comes with a bit of a tradeoff.

With its air conditioning system under maintenance, Museum Siam has decided to open all its exhibitions and services for free to compensate for any discomfort.

That means now through Nov. 21, the museum will waive its usual THB100 entry fee to see current exhibitions such as Decoding Thainess, which explores what it means to be Thai and how the notion of Thainess has developed throughout history. Next week, Random Lucky Story kicks off Nov. 16 about the Thai lottery and all the superstitions associated with it.

Museum Siam is open 9am-6pm every day except Monday. It can be reached via MRT Sanam Chai’s exit No. 1.
