Corrections Museum | พิพิธภัณฑ์ราชทัณฑ์ ****
Former prison turned museum. Four of the original buildings still stand, of which the prison block is the most impressive. A few cells are still in their original state and equipment for torture and execution is on display. Wax models show how the equipment was used at that time. The main building shows through scenes again with wax models the various ways convicts were executed by sword, gun and injection, illustrated with thankfully unclear photos of some more recent executions. The protocol for execution is quite extensive and all steps are described in detail. More photos • Corrections Museum
