Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This museum is located on Chakrabongse Road which is walking distance from Khao San Road. The museum showcases the history of the Thai currency. There is an interesting and well presented display of Thai as well as foreign coins with descriptions in Thai, English and Braile. Entrance is free.

I am collecting coins thus couldn't miss it.
Coin museums normally can be quite dull, even though they display precious coins and have interesting facts.

What if a museum would have a high tech twist to it, i.e. 360 cinema with a good sound and interesting history, private (in my case , yes!) guides and good staff? Then it would be interesting not only for you if you enjoy coins and history but also for your family and kids.

The museum offers regular guided tours, and would do the tour with 100 % attention to you even if you are only one in a group.

Thai people are known for their hospitality and you can really feel attention to detail here.

Admission and tours are free of charge. Enjoy it.

What's here is very nicely presented in a very easy-going environment. I was surprised it wasn't bigger and with more exhibits, considering the rich history of coinage in Thailand. The staff are friendly and helpful, and speak English. You can tour the three rooms of the museum on your own, or jion their periodic tours scheduled throughout the day. The museum is free and a nice cool respite from the hustle, bustle and heat of the Banglampoo area. Only of mild interest to most people, but will be enjoyed by coin enthusiasts. The most interesting part for me was a display of unusual, special coins minted by various countries around the world, in unusual shapes, colors, metals, and even containing pearls and other metals within the coins.

We learned a lot about coins and the history of money. We also learned a lot about Thai history and culture. It was free and we had a lot fun learning from the polite and intelligent staff. After this we went for a ten minute drive to The Bank of Thailand Learning Center as suggested by another reviewer. This too was free. Combined it was a great day and everything was free except the delicious coffee. Thanks to the staff for your hard work we appreciate you! The reviewer that wrote "Don't go! Trash..." I honestly do not understand how they managed to have such a bad experience because our trip was the exact opposite. It was a high quality place!

This museum can only be visited as part of a guided tour group. Tours leave the reception desk every half hour on the hour and half hour. It is not necessary to book ahead, just wait for the next tour. The museum has some video presentations and exhibits covering the history of trade and of money. It is informative and not restricted to coins alone as the name might suggest.

The museum includes items from a pre-existing coin exhibition, now closed, that was previously located in the Grand Palace.

The only criticism I have is that the tour lasts only 1-1/2 hrs and is rushed. There is so much to see that an increase in length to 2 hours would seem appropriate. For example, there is one area with a set of coins of each denomination for a large number of the world’s countries, maybe all, didn’t catch how many. Children are encouraged to rush around stamping a souvenir booklet with images of the coins, which is fun, but adults don’t have time to look at every country’s exhibit. It is not allowed to circuit again to take in more of the exhibits without a guide. I suppose that’s for security reasons. Could have spent more time here.

Admission is free and the tours are free.

It’s important to note that the museum’s stated opening hours are 10am to 6pm (Tuesday to Sunday – closed Monday). But, because admission is by 1-1/2 hr guided tour, the effective closing time is 4.30pm, possibly earlier – the last guided tour may depart before 4.30pm! To avoid disappointment, it would be advisable to go in the morning or early afternoon latest to catch a tour.

Consider combining this with the Bank of Thailand Learning Center (TripAdvisor reviews at “Bank of Thailand Learning Center”), which is open Tuesday to Sunday (10am – 4pm), say one in the morning & one in the afternoon.

The displays more than make up for the size of this very small, new museum. Although the main exhibit (on the history of currency) was closed when we visited, the temporary exhibit was a fascinating look at the history of Thai money. Better yet, all of the exhibits that we saw were accessible for the blind, with braille descriptions and objects that they could touch.

This museum is part of the Muse Pass, so I'm not sure how much the normal fee would be.

New coin museum about the coins of Thailand from the earliest metal coins through the present. Interesting display. Close to the police station end of Khao San Road it is easy to find. Not very big but air conditioned and very pleasant staff.

We went there for 2 times this trip. All official time said close at 6pm, including the entrance. But the staff said they close at 430pm!! So we went one temporary exhibition and decide to go the main next day ( they said the main exhibition need to go with the guide and the last guide is 400pm). The next day we go at 3pm , I ask them how to get and when is the tour. They said all tour is finish and no way to go to the Main exhibition! So ridiculous and not welcome outsiders to come! IT JUST SO TERRIBLE!! The one purpose to go there only is for the air-con and toilets then nothing!! This museum make me bad impression for Thailand!!
