Siriraj Medical Museum (Siriraj Hospital) located in Bangkok, Thailand, often called the Museum of Death.
It is the oldest medical institute in Thailand. This hospital was founded by King Rama V in 1886. The medical faculty collects various equipment and documents to fill the museum, which is expected to be a source of information for students and practitioners in the health field of the White Elephant State.
Quotes The Culture Trip, Siriraj Medical Museum actually consists of six separate museums. Most of the museums are located on the second floor of the Adulyadejvikrom Building. This is where visitors pay an entrance ticket of 200 baht (about Rp. 91 thousand). Visitors are prohibited from taking pictures in the area.
The Ellis Pathology Museum is the first museum that visitors pass through. Its name comes from Professor AG Ellis, who is best known for promoting pathology in Thailand.
For those who cannot read or understand Thai, the Ellis Museum of Pathology may be less interesting, although there are many seemingly informative exhibits and displays in the three rooms that make up the museum.
Next, visitors can visit the Songkran Niyomsane Forensic Medicine Museum. This museum displays a lot of information. On the one hand, there are photos of the 2004 tsunami that devastated southern Thailand, plus photos of its victims.
The museum also displays various developments in forensic medicine. Tools used to perform autopsies on major cases, such as the serial killer and cannibal Si-Ouey case, are on display here.
