Museum of Sex Thailand


Thailand is not known for its openness to sex-related topics and conversations, so it is not a surprise that only few people know that there’s so-called Museum of Sex located right in the middle of Thong Lo.

The museum consists of 2 places: Green Lantern – a bar-cum-gallery – and Kamavijitra Erotic Sculpture House. 

While visiting Green Lantern is free, visitors need to make a reservation 2 days in advance for Kamavijitra, with an entry fee of ฿500.

Besides drinks, you can walk around the museum zone and look at a collection of modern sex-related objects like magazines and toys.

Green Lantern also has modern erotic art exhibitions on rotation in its gallery zone. The art form has quite a diverse range too, with paintings, photographs, and even performances.

Located only a block away from Green Lantern, Kamavijitra houses around 500 pieces of erotic wooden sculptures and paintings – all in traditional Thai settings and styles. 

Interestingly, all human models are designed after men and women we often see depicted on the temples’ walls in the past.

If you’re a museum freak and didn’t know about these places before, then you better put it on the list.
