Eye-catching exhibits at Bangkok Planetarium

Museums may not be on your typical things-to-do list as they ‘re exactly exciting. All you’d expect to do is pay for the ticket, walk around, and read information charts during a normal trip to the museum. 

However, Bangkok Planetarium is one science museum that not only offers tons of interesting things to learn about but also various IG-worthy spots that all photo buffs should check out.

Bangkok Planetarium is Southeast Asia’s oldest planetarium and focuses on teaching visitors all about space and astronomy through interactive activities, exhibits, and multimedia presentations.  

For Thai locals, most of us may have experienced a school trip at Bangkok Planetarium only to probably never visit again after their first time. 

However, the planetarium is constantly revamping itself and aims to make the world of science appealing to the younger generation too. Thus, it goes beyond being just a learning hub but also has awesome IG checkpoints to get cool shots – all while learning something new.

Located behind the Space and Time section is a neon blue tunnel with super funky outer space vibes. 

Aside from taking a normal shot, you can also get a Boomerang here as the neon lights are always changing. Wearing a white shirt is recommended to blend in with your surroundings!
