      Back out in the park to relax under the trees, I noticed this curious guy:

        If I were a fish, this would be the view as I laid down on the grass to relax:

                Perhaps not the best news for this railway-museum at Chatuchak, Bangkok:

                  A complicated and sad situation.

                  It also saddens me to read the words of Mr Chulasiri: “Young people nowappear less interested in visiting museums. Many are just following world trends. If youngsters do not pay attention, history will fade away”.

                  I’m glad you went there pakarang, and later took the trouble to repost the photos lost from old forum.

                    I'm glad as well.... I had been planning to do it for a while, and when a friend called me that day and asked if we "could hang out" at Chatuchak Park, it was an opportunity not to be missed.

                    And the entrance... it was free of charge. (Even though I left a 1500 Thai Baht donation because I loved the place so much and because the "guard" there was extremely narrative, fun and so dedicated!).

                      It is a great risk to operate a private owned museum. There are mostly problems, when the owner passes away. This had to be changed in hands of a community.
                      Let's hope, that there will be enough lovers, who will take care of all the displayed units. But the fact is, you will see this collection never in a complete state before.

                        I agree with you Ralf. As sad as it may be, but I think a lot in this exhibition might be lost if the government or the state steps in and support the continuation of the museum.

                        This museum is not mentioned in travel books for Bangkok: hardly any locals know of it either, and definitely not the majority of taxi drivers. It wasn't even marked on the map back then (I don't know if it is marked now). I'm really glad I saw this and spent some time there before I left Bangkok.
