Siriraj Medical Museum | พิพิธภัณฑ์การแพทย์ศิริราช *****
Those of you that are interested in forensics, knowledge about parasites, anatomy etc. should not miss the museums at the Siriraj hospital. Presented in an old fashioned but mostly respectful style, one finds skeletons, embryo's, sick body parts and parasites on alcohol. Some of the people that gave their body for medicine (and especially children) are remembered with a picture, some flowers, small presents etc. The museums are most famous for 1 sensational attraction, namely the preserved bodies of some notorious killers. Not for the weak of heart. Be respectful when you go there. Dec 2011: please note that nowadays taking photos is not allowed anymore. More photos • Siriraj Medical Museum
