Bangkok Dolls Museum

A favorite of children and Thai culture enthusiasts alike, the Bangkok Doll Factory and Museum houses an interesting exhibition of hand-made dolls dressed in traditional hilltribe costumes. The ornate dresses and traditional scenes (Ramakien, monks, Thai-style houses etc) offer a unique view into Thai art and living.

Witness an ancient craft in practice as the dolls are being made in front of your eyes, and then take a memento of the experience home after visiting the doll store. At the time of writing, dolls cost 300-5000 Baht.
