Mineral Resources Museum
Established in 1924-1925 as an information centre of mineral resources and geology found in Thailand for students and members of the public, the museum was first ready to showcase its exhibits in 1937 when it was named the Mineral and stone museum. It made several moves and finally settled as the Mineral Resources Museum in 1986. There are three sections of exhibits including geology, mineral resources and special exhibits.
The geology section features showcases found in Thailand, such as rock, the earth, fossils. The mineral resources features mining in Thailand and the special exhibits revolve every 3-6 months.
