A museum chronicling the history, spectacular and sordid, of Bangkok’s most famous red-light district opens today.
The Patpong Museum is packed with artifacts and information explaining its origins over seven decades ago to the present day through historical objects including old signs, video exhibitions and more.
It’s part of an effort to bring in street art, murals and more to reinvigorate the area and expand its appeal (read: less creepy) in a rapidly changing Bangkok.
Now through Friday, entry is THB295. After Friday, it rises to THB350 and includes one drink. The Patpong Museum is open 10am to 10pm downstairs from Black Pagoda in Patpong Soi 2.
