Museum of the Department of Forensic Medicine

Grotesque but fascinating

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

The main attractions here are the mummified remains of infamous Thai murderers, but the shelves are also chock full of skulls marred by bullets, aborted foetuses and an array of limbs and parts that are quite unidentifiable. This is not a place for the faint of heart and many of the photographs of the deceased are far more disturbing than the dismembered limbs.

Siriraj Hospital, where the museum is located, is interestingly enough the hospital where many members of the Royal family are treated.

More details
Siriraj Hospital, 2 Thanon Prannok, Thonburi
Opening Hours: Daily 09:00-16:00
How to get there: The hospital is on the Chao Phraya River, just off the Tha Wang Lang Chao Phraya Express pier. The museum is at the northern end of a dozen buildings huddled on the grounds. It's a bit tricky to find – ask directions.
