Bangkok Medical Museum

baby skeletons

Some very dear friends Chris and Laura were living in Thailand while I was there, and so I went into the downtown area of Bangkok to spend some time with them.

Chris writes a travel blog that focuses on weird things around the world, and so he decided to take me to the Medical Museum.

It’s not really about medicine. It’s more of an anatomy museum. Instead of the usual diagrams and pictures, they have actual skeletons and actual bodies.

I am not usually one to be interested in babies in jars, so I was a little uncomfortable with the whole thing (if I am being honest.) However, some of the exhibits were interesting.

with bodies

For me, I think I preferred Body Worlds in the US because the plasticized tissue was less degraded and easier to see than the slices of bodies in jars of formaldehyde.

However, I am sure it’s an educational museum for the kids who go a field trips there.

I'm from Phoenix. I feel like that means a lot. I don't live there anymore, but it will always be part of me. On a more cheesy note, I am a Phoenix. I rose from some serious ashes a few times.
